Redshirt freshman Cole Conrad will add depth on a veteran offensive line for the Huskers in 2015. The 6-5, 290-pound Conrad spent the majority of the spring working at offensive tackle, where the Huskers have four veteran seniors who are expected to take the majority of the snaps. Conrad joined the NU program as a walk-on from Fremont’s Archbishop Bergan High School.
Conrad redshirted and worked on the scout team offense.
Before Nebraska (Archbishop Bergan HS)
Conrad helped Archbishop Bergan High School to an 8-2 record in 2013, including a trip to the second round of the Class C-2 state playoffs. Conrad’s dominant play on the offensive line for Coach Seth Mruz helped power an offense that averaged nearly 270 rushing yards per game. On defense, Conrad made 27 tackles, including three tackles for loss, a sack and a fumble recovery. Conrad was also a key part of Bergan’s success in 2012, when the Knights posted an 8-3 record and reached the quarterfinals of the state playoffs.
Conrad earned first-team Class C-2 all-state honors as an offensive lineman from the Associated Press, Omaha World-Herald and Lincoln Journal Star as a senior. He was also the honorary defensive captain of the Fremont Tribune’s all-area team.
