One of the highest-rated members of Scott Frost‘s second recruiting class in Lincoln will have a significant health hurdle to navigate before seeing the field for his home-state school.

According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Nick Henrich is facing a “rather lengthy recovery” after undergoing surgery to repair an unspecified shoulder injury.  Henrich, an early enrollee, sustained the injury during a spring practice session earlier this month.

Despite the ominous-sounding recovery process, Frost seemed mildly optimistic that the linebacker will be available at some point in September.
