Scott Frost hinted during his Wednesday press conference that Nebraska might not be done adding players in the early signing period and the Huskers made one such addition on Friday.
Oklahoma State defensive tackle Darrion Daniels was announced as a graduate transfer who will have one season to play for the Huskers. His younger brother, Damion, will be a sophomore for Nebraska in 2019.
Reports of Darrion’s impending transfer emerged in early December.
Darrion, a 4-star recruit, had an impressive offer list coming out of high school ––Oklahoma, Ohio State, LSU, Texas, Tennessee, Miami, Notre Dame, USC, among others –– but chose the Cowboys and had an immediate impact, playing 13 games as a true freshman and earning Oklahoma State’s outstanding defensive newcomer award.
He had a combined 41 tackles, six tackles for loss and three pass breakups over 23 games as a sophomore and junior, earning the Vernon Grant Award for outstanding leadership after his junior year. An injury limited Darrion to four games in 2018, allowing him to redshirt. He had seven tackles and a tackle for loss (sack) in those four games.
