Huskers Land Commitment From Arizona State Offensive Lineman Ben Scott

December 23, 2022

Nebraska added another key piece to its roster on Friday with the commitment of offensive lineman transfer Ben Scott.

Scott—who entered the portal after four seasons at Arizona State—chose Nebraska over other offers from programs like Auburn and UCLA. He was a 28-game starter with the Sun Devils, and moved to center in 2022 after time at right tackle in 2020 and 2021.

Standing at 6-foot-5 and 310-pounds, Scott is Nebraska’s seventh portal addition and will quickly provide depth on the offensive line. He is also quickly adding to the conversation as a potential starter in 2023.

Scott—who is originally from Honolulu, Hawaii—is also familiar with Nebraska. His mother, Renee, is a native of Columbus, Nebraska, and graduated from the University of Nebraska—Lincoln. He most recently visited Nebraska a couple of weeks ago.

Also of note, Scott also camped at Nebraska for a Friday Night Lights camp during Mike Riley’s tenure with the Huskers.

Coach Matt Rhule spoke about the offensive line during his early signing day press conference, saying he was pleased with the players on Nebraska’s roster. However, he hoped to bring depth to the line. Scott certainly does that.

“I am going to fight for those guys. I like those guys,” Rhule said. “We have tried to bring in some depth. We wanted to bring in a great young group that we can develop and watch them grow.”

Scott has two years of eligibility remaining. He redshirted in 2019 and has the extra year of eligibility due to the COVID year in 2020.
