50 HUSKERS TO KNOW: No. 48
No. 48 Ryan Hill, FB/TE, 6-3, 255, Jr., and Tyler Legate, FB, 5-10, 235, Jr.
This tandem should rotate at the fullback position depending on what offensive coordinator Shawn Watson wants to accomplish. Legate is a more traditional kick-out blocker who can get low under a guy’s pads and drive him back. He’s also a decent short-yardage runner, as rarely as he shows it.
Hill, meanwhile, can be an effective H-back, running routes out of the backfield, picking up blocks against a pass blitz or serving as a third tight end in heavy sets. Hill is a decent blocker, but a dangerous receiver at that position. He’ll be one to watch down by the goal line.
