2019 Season Outlook
Junior tight end Jack Stoll returns to the Nebraska offense in 2019 and will be expected to be a key weapon in the Huskers’ high-powered attack. The 6-4, 260-pound Stoll started every game as a sophomore in 2018, and is the leader of a talented group of Nebraska tight ends. Stoll caught 21 passes last season, and could be in line to easily surpass those numbers in 2019.
Stoll has continued to be a leader in the weight room for Nebraska and has continued to add strength and speed, allowing him to not only be a receiving threat, but also a strong blocker. Stoll is a two-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and a five-time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll member.
Stoll started all 12 games at tight end for Nebraska in his sophomore season. He led the Husker tight ends with 21 receptions, 245 receiving yards and three touchdown catches, setting career highs in all three categories. Stoll also returned a pair of short kickoffs for 16 yards.
Stoll earned his second career start against Colorado and had one catch for four yards before adding a nine-yard reception against Troy. Against Purdue, he set career highs with four catches and 51 receiving yards, including a 33-yard catch that was the second-longest catch of his career. At No. 16 Wisconsin, Stoll caught a 12-yard touchdown pass for his first TD of the season and third of his career. The next week at Northwestern, Stoll caught three passes for 40 yards. Against Bethune-Cookman, Stoll hauled in a career-long 37-yard reception for his only catch of the game. At No. 8 Ohio State, Stoll caught three passes - one shy of his career high - for 17 yards. He then caught a 12-yard touchdown pass against Illinois the next week. Stoll had two catches for 26 yards in the Huskers’ win over Michigan State. He concluded his sophomore season with four catches for 37 yards at Iowa, tying his career high in receptions and catching a 4-yard touchdown pass.
Stoll played in all 12 games as a redshirt freshman, earning a start at Minnesota. He caught eight passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns from his tight end spot, and he also saw action on special teams. Stoll was Nebraska’s second-leading receiver among tight ends.
Stoll played in each of the first six games but did not have a reception. His 12-yard reception in the seventh game against No. 9 Ohio State marked his first career reception. Against Northwestern, Stoll set career highs with three catches for 41 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown grab that tied the game at 14 in the second quarter. The 32-yard touchdown marked Stoll’s first career score and was the longest reception of his career. He followed that performance with another multi-catch effort, hauling in two passes for 21 yards at Minnesota. Stoll caught a three-yard pass for his second career touchdown at Penn State and ended his season with a 12-yard reception against Iowa.
Stoll redshirted in his first season in the program.
Before Nebraska (Regis Jesuit HS)
Stoll excelled as a tight end during his prep career at Regis Jesuit High School. As a senior, Stoll was a second-team all-state selection after catching 32 passes for 434 yards and six touchdowns for Coach Danny Filleman’s team. Stoll’s play helped Regis Jesuit to a 9-3 record and a trip to the quarterfinals of the Colorado 5A state playoffs.
Stoll also helped Regis Jesuit to a state quarterfinal appearance and a 10-2 record during his junior season. From his tight end position, Stoll caught 19 passes for 176 yards and four touchdowns. Stoll was also a factor in the passing game as a sophomore, helping his team to a 9-2 record and a state playoff appearance en route to all-conference honors.
Stoll was named a Blue-Grey All-American. He was ranked as the No. 3 prospect in Colorado by both Rivals.com and ESPN, while 247Sports ranked him as the fourth-best prospect in the state. ESPN ranked Stoll as the nation’s No. 9 tight end, while Rivals, Scout and 247Sports all listed him among the top 40 players at the position.
Stoll only visited Nebraska, but had numerous offers including Air Force, Colorado, Colorado State, New Mexico, Texas and Wyoming. Stoll was a second-team academic all-state selection, and he also competed in basketball and track and field for Regis Jesuit High.
Jack was born on Jan. 28, 1998, and is the son of Chris and Mary Grace Stoll. He is majoring in marketing. Stoll has volunteered his time with the Nebraska Football Road Race, Husker Heroes and local school and hospital outreach visits.
