The largest member of the 2003 Nebraska football team, Jemayel (pronouced jeh-MILE) Phillips is expected to push for playing time in the offensive line this season.

Phillips has added 25 pounds to his 6-6 frame since arriving in Lincoln, and has good movement despite his mammoth size.
Phillips enters fall camp listed on the depth chart as co-No. 2 with sophomore Brandon Koch at right guard behind junior Jake Andersen.
