Nebraska Cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt to Return for Senior Season

January 04, 2021

Cam Taylor-Britt is staying put for one more year. The junior cornerback announced on Twitter that he plans to “take it back for one more ride” with Nebraska.

He’ll return for his senior season with the Huskers in 2021.

There was some speculation that Taylor-Britt might consider leaving after his junior season to enter the NFL Draft. His performance in 2020 certainly could have gotten him to the NFL, especially with good testing. Instead, he’ll return for another season.

Taylor-Britt was named second-team All-Big Ten selection by the conference coaches for 2020. Over the Huskers’ eight games, Taylor-Britt totaled 28 tackles with 3.0 tackles for loss, four pass breakups and two interceptions. He also led the team with six passes defended and tied for the team lead in interceptions. In addition to his duties on defense, Taylor-Britt was the Huskers’ leading punt returner. He returned six punts for 79 yards.

The decision is a big one for Nebraska, especially following the announcement that outside linebacker JoJo Domann will return for a sixth year. Domann made his announcement over the weekend, electing to use the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA.

The duo are two of the Huskers’ top defenders in 2020 and could be major impact players in 2021.
