Raridon, Jefferson No Longer Listed on Nebraska’s Roster

January 17, 2020

Offensive lineman John Raridon is no longer listed on the Nebraska football roster

Raridon told the Omaha World-Herald on Friday that he is retiring from football to “pursue a career as an architect.” The spring semester will be his last at Nebraska.

Raridon came to Nebraska as a 4-star prospect from West Des Moines, Iowa. His father, Scott, was also a lineman at Nebraska. Raridon appeared in two games in 2019—Northern Illinois and Maryland—but served as a backup interior lineman for most of his Nebraska career.

Outside linebacker Pernell Jefferson, a New Orleans native, is also no longer listed on the roster. The New Orleans native didn’t appear in a game during his four years with the Huskers. He graduated in December.

Walk-on offensive linemen Collin Shefke and Mitchell Balenger, as well as walk-on wide receiver Todd Honas, have also been removed from the roster. Balenger announced that he had placed his name in the transfer portal on Jan. 12.

Nebraska’s roster—as it currently stands on the website—shows 160 total players. That includes the 2020 recruiting class, which now boasts the headshots of the early enrollees.
