Until the start of fall camp, The World-Herald will be counting down the top 50 players you need to know heading into the 2015 Husker football season.

* * *

Brandon Reilly

6-1  |  195  |  Jr.  |  Receiver

Only nine career receptions, but Reilly potentially could move into an important role in this offense after the Huskers lost their main vertical threat in Kenny Bell. Reilly is one of the speediest in the NU receiving corps and has just enough experience to be ready for any expanded work.

The former Lincoln Southwest player missed the first six games a year ago, but finished the season with an important catch at Iowa and then four receptions in the Holiday Bowl. Also contributed on special teams, blocking one punt and helping with pressure on another in the Purdue game.
