Christmas gift for Husker fans, Dennard has said he plans to stay and play his senior season next year for the Blackshirts.
"I'm not into that no more," Dennard said after Nebraska's Sunday practice in San Diego. "That's just talk."
Dennard said he plans to come back "for sure."
Sounds like he was considering it. I for one am glad to see him come back.
With Dennard sticking it out another year, it means the Blackshirts are only losing 5 players - Pierre Allen, Eric Hagg, Prince Amukamara, Rickey Thenarse, Dejon Gomes. While those were big contributors, none are irreplaceable as we have seen some pretty talented younger players step into those spots throughout this season and hold their own and Dennard's return helps make the loss of Prince not so bad.
