Redshirt freshman Hunter Miller was pushed into a leading role during spring practice and hopes to compete for playing time on the offensive line in 2018. Miller saw extensive action with the top unit at center this spring, while senior Cole Conrad and junior Michael Decker were out with injuries. Decker has since retired from football, leaving the center position wide open heading into fall camp. The 6-4, 325-pound Miller joined the Nebraska program as a walk-on from Cross County High School.
Miller had a strong first year in the classroom, compiling a 3.803 cumulative grade-point average, while majoring in civil engineering. He earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll both semesters.
Miller contributed on Nebraska’s offensive scout team while sitting out the 2017 season as a redshirt.
