Nebraska Football: A Thomas Fidone debut would be massive for program

A prominent Nebraska football recruit may be making his debut soon. Tight end Thomas Fidone has been dealing with injuries ever since he got to Lincoln. Now, it appears that he may have an opportunity to play towards the end of the year.

Fidone was an extremely anticipated recruit, and should help bolster the Nebraska football tight end room. At the time of his commitment, Nebraska was not exactly getting ton of production from the position. Now, that seems to have changed. If he is able to return, that would give Nebraska the opportunity to add depth to a very productive tight end room, as well as give fans a glimpse of what to expect down the road.

Fidone’s explosiveness, route-running, and speed are all things that Nebraska football should be able to benefit from. He runs like a wide receiver, and has game-changing ability. Simply put, he brings something to the Nebraska football tight end position that the program has not had in years. Now, fans may finally get the chance to see what he can bring to the table.

“Thomas, he’s still in meetings,” Nebraska tight ends coach Sean Beckton said Tuesday. “He has not been cleared yet to actually participate in football activities. But I know he’s very, very close. I’m excited about it. I know he’s excited about it. He’s one of those guys, you know him throughout the recruiting process, he’s itching and very passionate about the game. He sees where he can help the team.

“Obviously, it’s a process. When he gets back out there, we have a plan for him … whenever he’s cleared.”

If he is able to come back before the season ends, that would be awesome. This would give Nebraska football the opportunity to see what he is capable of, while not overworking him and risking further injury. Development is going to be key for this position down the road.

Nebraska football has made it clear that the tight end position is going to be a big part of the offense in the future. Between what they have done in recent classes as well as their extended use of the tight ends so far this season, that much is clear. It will be awesome to see one of Nebraska football’s highest -rated recruits on the field. I certainly know I’ll be anxiously waiting his return.

In a season full of ups and downs, this would certainly fall under the category of good news.
