Nebraska will have two new starters on its interior line. Then there’s Wilson, who has suddenly gone from the new guy to an elder statesman in the middle of the field. Fans clamored and coaches discussed Wilson’s breaking through in 2017, though he mostly saw action on special teams and even as a goal-line fullback. But after beginning last season as a backup, he started the last nine games at right guard en route to honorable mention All-Big Ten status. Assuming Matt Farniok stays at right tackle, the Huskers will be breaking in a new center and left guard. If Wilson continues to lock down his spot, NU will be that much better early on.
