Husker Camp Countdown: No. 30 Boe Wilson

Boe Wilson

6-3, 300 • Senior • Offensive guard

The product of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, has started the last 21 games at right guard.

But Scott Frost hinted that right tackle Matt Farniok may move to right guard for his senior year. That means Wilson may be forced to compete for a starting job at left guard — manned last season by Trent Hixson — or become part of a rotation.

Wilson has generally been a reliable run blocker, especially in short-area plays, but he may not be as good as Farniok. Nebraska has some desire to get a bigger, longer pass protector on the edge like Bryce Benhart or Christian Gaylord.

Of the two starting guards from last season, Wilson was often better and may make a good fit at left guard. Hixson, Ethan Piper and perhaps Broc Bando will be in the mix, too.

NU’s offensive line is experienced — and that’s a good thing.
