Katerian LeGrone

In the right situations, Katerian LeGrone can be the kind of big-play guy Cethan Carter used to be for the Huskers.

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

Katerian LeGrone

6-3, 235 • Freshman • Tight end

After making one catch during his redshirt season in the win over Bethune-Cookman, LeGrone, by all accounts, made a nice move in spring, impressing position coach Sean Beckton with his improved grasp of the offense. LeGrone, a converted high school receiver with some extra weight, has the ability to stretch an opposing defense because of his speed. If there’s one area where coach Scott Frost wants tight end play to grow, it’s in making more chunk plays downfield. LeGrone won’t be an every-down tight end for several years, but, in the right situations, he can be the kind of big-play guy Cethan Carter used to be for the Huskers. Ten catches for 150 yards and a couple scores would be a good start.
