Nebraska skills camp standouts

Nebraska held its annual skill positions camp Friday morning which had a turnout of roughly 250 prospects that worked out inside Memorial Stadium for three hours.

HuskerOnline.com was there for the action and brings you some of the top performers at each position below.

Quarterbacks

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Thramer was one of the most consistent quarterbacks on Friday and showed accuracy and nice touch on his passes.

Wide receivers

Liewer showed off excellent hands and body control during NU's skills camp.

Betts doesn't look like your average wide receiver that just finished up his freshman year of high school. He had an excellent showing at the Nebraska State 7-on-7 tournament Thursday and flashed his talent several times Friday morning at NU's skills camp. He's certainly an up and coming prospect to know in the state.

2018 Lincoln (Neb.) Southwest's Cameron Pieper was a standout at tight end Friday.

McCormack is very well put together physically and has nice speed and awareness that helped him and show off his coverage skills during the one-on-one portion of the camp.
