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.

Kevin Maurice

6-3  |  280  |  Jr.  |  DT

Although Maurice has played in 16 games and was used as a true freshman in 2013, it has been a fairly quiet two seasons because of the two returnees in front of him.

Lacks the speed and athleticism of Maliek Collins and the power and size of Vincent Valentine, but Huskers could definitely use some good snaps out of Maurice (and Kevin Williams).

Working under a new set of eyes with Hank Hughes handling the NU defensive linemen and Mark Banker coordinating the defense.
