Honors & Awards
Redshirt freshman Brett Wells is expected to add depth at tight end, one of Nebraska's deepest and most experienced positions heading into the 2010 campaign. A walk-on from St. Paul, Neb., Wells made the most of his first year in the program adding 25 pounds of muscle to his 6-4 frame.
Wells redshirted and worked on the scout team offense.
Before Nebraska (St. Paul HS)
Wells had an outstanding prep career at St. Paul High School, where he earned honorable-mention all-state honors from the Omaha World-Herald and Lincoln Journal Star for his efforts for the Wildcats and Coach Travis Brouillette. Wells' play helped St. Paul to the second round of the Class C-1 state playoffs in 2008.
Wells was also a member of the basketball team, averaging about 15 points and 10 rebounds per game as a senior. He was an honorable-mention all-state pick by both papers during his junior season, while earning second-team all-state accolades from LJS as a senior.
Brett is the son of Tim and Pam Wells, and he was born on Nov. 16, 1990. Wells has not declared a major, but was named to the Big 12 Commissioner's Fall Academic Honor Roll.
