2019 Season Outlook
Redshirt freshman Wyatt Liewer made great strides during spring practice, and is positioned to contend for playing time at wide receiver this fall. The 6-3, 195-pound Liewer spent most of his practice time at the Z receiver position where Nebraska returns Kade Warner and Jaron Woodyard from last season.
A walk-on from O’Neill, Neb., Liewer concluded spring ball with a strong showing, catching a 55-yard touchdown pass in the Red-White game. Liewer earned a 3.630 grade-point average in agricultural economics in his first season in Lincoln and was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll both semesters.
Liewer added depth to the wide receiving corps while utilizing his redshirt season in 2018.
