Nebraska's Jack Stoll had his moment on April 15 with a nine-yard touchdown catch from Tanner Lee.

The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2017 season.

Stoll hasn’t done anything to take himself out of consideration for the leading role at tight end, and that alone is encouraging for a redshirt freshman competing at one of Nebraska’s most unresolved positions heading into fall camp.

Options abound at a wide-open spot where three four-year letterwinners graduated following the 2016 season. If the spring game is any indication, senior Tyler Hoppes (four catches for 66 yards) and redshirt freshman David Engelhaupt (four for 54) will also be among those who have a final say in how the battle shakes out.

But Stoll had his moment on April 15 with a nine-yard touchdown catch from Tanner Lee, whose pro-style abilities will help Nebraska involve its tight ends in the passing game the way coach Mike Riley likes. Stoll could be one of those beneficiaries in 2017.
