Fidone Continues to Impress Rhule

Nebraska head football coach Matt Rhule after Saturday’s spring game talked about tight end Thomas Fidone and how he’s never happy because he wants to be great. That’s impressive for Rhule because of Fidone coming off two knee injuries.

“He wants to be the best tight end in the world,” Rhule said.  “Coming off two ACLs, to get through a spring, a fall camp and a season healthy, that’s what he needed. Because now instead of rehabbing this winter, he’s lifting.”

Rhule added that other schools have reached out to Fidone to leave and come play in their programs, but noted Fidone is a Cornhusker through and through.
