Devine Ozigbo

Devine Ozigbo is a bit of an enigma — a big back with nimble feet who may be No. 3 headed into training camp.

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

Last season, Ozigbo was in our top 10 and projected to be NU’s starting running back. Through the first half of last year, he played like it, running for 318 yards in the first five games. In the final eight, he rushed for 94 and missed three games because of injuries.

Ozigbo is a bit of an enigma — a big back with nimble feet who may be No. 3 headed into training camp. He’s often better at the second level of a defense than the first, and led all Husker running backs in two straight bowl games.

Which Husker do you think will have the most rushes in 2017?

Deciding a lead back is one of Nebraska's biggest question marks heading into the 2017 season. Who do you think will lead the team in carries?
