Sam McKewon Omaha World-Herald

From now until the start of fall camp, The World-Herald will be counting down the top 50 players you need to know heading into the 2013 football season.

Jordan Westerkamp | 6-0 | 200 pounds | RFr. | Wide receiver

One of the top recruits in Nebraska’s 2012 class, Westerkamp redshirted to get acclimated to college and learn the Huskers’ offense. A natural slot receiver who runs good routes and may have the team’s best hands, Westerkamp will work as NU’s No. 4 or 5 receiver, seeing reps behind junior starter Jamal Turner.

Quarterback Taylor Martinez is big on trusting his receivers, so if Westerkamp can earn that trust over a relatively soft nonconference schedule, he could become more of a factor in Big Ten play.
