LINCOLN, Neb. - Filled with high hopes and lofty expectations from fans, junior college cornerback transfer Mo Seisay's first year in Lincoln was rough in 2012.
Seisay hurt his ankle early in the year and the injury put him behind. When he did get healthy, a loaded cornerback position kept him lower than expected on the depth chart.
But 2013 is a new year and a last chance for the senior to make an impact wearing the N.
“He had a great summer, he really rebuilt his body and has been injury free,” said Nebraska secondary coach Terry Joseph. “He's playing really really well. He's a guy we feel could help us at multiple positions. He's playing with a lot more confidence. He's a lot more comfortable.
“When he got hurt, he probably had the “poor me” a little bit. He knows this is his last shot as a senior. We have talked to him about not putting as much pressure on himself, to take one play at a time. He's done a really good job for us so far.”
Seisay is talented enough and has the size to also play nickel and dime this fall, places he's getting looks at in camp.
“The more versatility you have, the better chances you have to get out there,” said Joseph.
Seisay appeared in 12 games last season, registering seven total tackles. Out of junior college, he was one of the mostly high coveted defensive backs in the country, picking Nebraska over claimed offers from Arkansas, Indiana, Mississippi, Florida State, and Oklahoma.
