Husker Camp Countdown: No. 19 Brent Qvale
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.

Brent Qvale | 6-foot-7 | 315 pounds | Sr. | Offensive tackle

The North Dakotan shook off injuries and positions switches as a junior to settle at left tackle, where he started 13 games.

There were games that served as a learning experience — UCLA was one of them — but Qvale has the athleticism and now the in-game experience to make a big leap as a senior.

He’s a decent run blocker and his size can be a challenge to get around. Can he stay healthy? Qvale’s likely to be challenged for playing time by Matt Finnin or again share time on the left side with Jeremiah Sirles, who swings between left and right tackle.
