Nebraska Roster Reset: Defensive Backs

January 30, 2020

The 2019 season has officially come to an end, which means its time to turn our sights toward 2020. With Nebraska locking in the vast majority of its recruiting class during the early signing period, now is a good time to take stock of where the roster stands.

We’ve made our way through the offense and the first two levels of the defense. Next up is a look at the secondary.

Offense: Backfield | Pass-Catchers | Offensive Line

Defense: Line | Linebackers

Cornerbacks (8 Scholarship, 3 Walk-on)

Returners: SR Dicaprio Bootle, JR Cam Taylor-Britt, SO Braxton Clark, SO Quinton Newsome, rFR Javin Wright, JR Ethan Cox (walk-on), JR Bradley Bunner (walk-on), SO Phalen Sanford (walk-on)

Newcomers: FR Ronald Delancey III, FR Jaiden Francois, FR Tamon Lynum

Departures: Lamar Jackson, Tony Butler, Jeramiah Stovall (walk-on)

Nebraska lost a three-year starter in Lamar Jackson at one of the corner spots, but it returns everything else and Travis Fisher has a stacked room of young guys developing behind the upperclassmen.
