The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2019 season.

6-4, 260 • junior • tight end
If the tight end position gets going again at Nebraska, Stoll figures to be a big reason why. Coach Scott Frost has said Stoll’s name more than once when listing leaders and underclassmen he’s excited about. From Lone Tree, Colorado, Stoll is already a capable blocker and made 21 catches for 245 yards and three touchdowns last season. While others at his position may have more physical upside or long-term potential, no one offers the same reliability and intangibles. A campaign like UCF tight end Jordan Akins enjoyed in Frost’s offense in 2017 — featuring 500-plus receiving yards and more than 16 yards per catch — would further signal that the potent attack is evolving at Nebraska.
