Nebraska landed in the final five schools for 2021 defensive lineman Mandela Tobin, who released his list of top programs Tuesday morning.
“Nebraska’s a top contender, for sure,” Tobin told the World-Herald July 30. “You can’t go wrong with them. It’s the rich history of football and the fan base is just crazy. I’ve never seen a fan base so passionate. And now, with Scott Frost, they’re building back the program to where it has always been. It’s exciting.”
The Huskers do not yet have a defensive lineman in the 2021 class, and several top targets have committed elsewhere or left Nebraska out of its top group, including Tobechi Okoli (Auburn) and Derek Wilkins (California).
