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.

Zach Sterup

6-8  |  320  |  Sr.  |  OT

The new coaches aren’t yet sure what they have in Sterup. Last year’s game film is a bit misleading. Injuries slowed the menacing-looking blocker, who handled rushers effectively during some engagements but struggled at critical times to keep the pocket clean. He was out all spring, too.

So coaches will keep a close eye on Sterup in August. They need a No. 1 right tackle, and they think he has the skills to handle it.
