Junior receiver Christian Bailey has made his mark on the Nebraska program in his first three seasons and will look for an increased role on offense this season. The 6-0, 205-pound Bailey has played in 10 games over the past two years, adding depth in one of the Big Ten’s best receiving corps.
Bailey also has contributed on special teams and been a dependable practice player. Last fall, his hard work earned Bailey recognition as the Huskers’ Scout Team Offensive MVP. Bailey came to Nebraska as a walk-on from San Clemente High School in California.
Bailey played in six games, including each of the final four regular-season games. Bailey saw time both as a reserve receiver and on special teams, but did not have a reception. He was also a valuable member of the scout team offense.
2014 (Redshirt Freshman)
Bailey played in four games as a reserve receiver and on special teams. He caught a 10-yard touchdown pass at Fresno State for his only reception of the season.
A walk-on, Bailey redshirted in his first season in the program.

A two-time all-league performer, Bailey hauled in 44 balls for 495 yards and four touchdowns as a senior, while also rushing for 274 yards and six touchdowns on 46 carries.
