Add another war daddy to the trenches for the Huskers.
On Tuesday, the Huskers defensive line got better when JUCO defensive tackle Jordon Riley committed to the team. He announced his decision on social media.

The former North Carolina bounce back was at Nebraska for an official visit the weekend of Dec. 6. He currently attends Garden City Community College where former Arizona Western coach Tom Minnick is now the head coach. Riley (6-6, 305) has enough size and athleticism to play any of the positions along Nebraska’s front.
That type of versatility could be key as the Huskers need to replace Darrion Daniels, Khalil Davis and Carlos Davis along the defensive line.

The lineman is the Huskers’ 20th commitment for the 2020 recruiting class. He is also the fourth JUCO player in the class and the third defensive lineman, joining Nash Hutmacher and Marquis Black. Riley will join the Huskers in January. He doesn’t have a redshirt left so he has two years to play two seasons.
