The lineman from Derby, Kansas, visited Lincoln three times this year. First for a Junior Day, then for the spring game and most recently for the Big Red BBQ. The no-nonsense mauler had long been one of Nebraska’s top targets on the line and fits in well with the group that offensive line coach Greg Austin is building.
Conn becomes the second Kansas offensive lineman to join the 2020 class, joining 4-star Turner Corcoran. Conn held a handful of offers including Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Kansas State and TCU.
