FIVE PLAYERS ON THE RISE
Name on the rise Week 2 take

David Knevel, (6-9, 315), OL, Sr.

Fifth-year senior David Knevel has had a very strong camp. Knevel has really stabilized things on the right side and looks poised for a big senior season.

Boe Wilson, (6-3, 295), OL, RFr.

One of the best competitions in Fall Camp remains at right guard between Boe Wilson and incumbent Tanner Farmer. Wilson has pushed Farmer and has been splitting reps with the No. 1 offense. At minimum he's going to give the Huskers a viable option on the interior if something happens to one of their starters.

Tristan Gebbia, (6-3, 185), QB, Fr.

Offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf and head coach Mike Riley both praised Tristan Gebbia for his play in camp, and said he's giving Patrick O'Brien all he wants for the race at No. 2 quarterback. Riley called Gebbia "one of the hardest workers" in their entire organization.

Mohamed Barry, (6-1, 230), LB, So.

The depth at linebacker is as strong as we've seen in years, and one of the reasons why is the elevated play in camp by guys like sophomore Mohamed Barry. Look for Barry to be a key special teams player and even have a chance to split some reps with Dedrick Young at inside linebacker.

Luke Gifford, (6-3, 235), LB, Jr.

No player on defense has benefited more from Nebraska's move to the 3-4 than junior Luke Gifford. The Lincoln Southeast native has had an outstanding camp, and is poised to earn a Blackshirt if he keeps at the pace he's going.

"After seeing Nebraska QB Tanner Lee spin it yesterday, he will be a top NFL prospect for '18 or '19. Size, arm talent, intangibles."

-Former Cleveland Browns GM Phil Savage on Nebraska QB Tanner Lee
