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.
5-11 | 180 | Sophomore | Place-kicker
Study the schedule and it’s easy to think there could be a number of close games, perhaps cranking up Brown’s importance. After getting his feet wet and winning the place-kicking duties last season as a true freshman, he’ll need to improve on longer kicks.
Brown was 2 of 7 from 40-plus yards (12 of 14 inside 40) but did set the NU freshman scoring record with 101 points, breaking the mark previously held by older brother Kris. Brown again could see some work on kickoffs, especially with Mauro Bondi leaving, but there are other candidates, too.
