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.
6-4 | 310 | Sr. | OL
He started his NU career at offensive tackle, and it appears — based on need — he’ll end it there. Price did have a strong spring at guard in 2014, so it’s possible he could move inside. But NU has fewer bodies at tackle, particularly seasoned ones. Price fits that mold.
The three-time Academic All-Big Ten choice from Houston brings an astute and businesslike demeanor, though at times last year he seemed to overanalyze instead of relying on his ability. But he’s expected to make a jump after an offseason of tackle-specific training. And he won’t turn 21 until October.
