Bo Pelini and company did a good job, bringing in a big class (26) that lacks a superstar but has a lot of high-quality signees. There’s a strong collection of players on defense, paced by DT Maliek Collins, DE A.J. Natter, OLB Josh Banderas, and S D.J. Singleton of Jersey City, N.J.
The offense welcomes two touted running backs in Adam Taylor of Katy, Texas, and Terrell Newby of West Hills, Calif. Johnny Stanton is a ballyhooed quarterback from Santa Margarita, Calif. JC transfers Randy Gregory (DE) and Matt Finnin (OT) will help right now in the trenches. Only one school (Illinois with five) signed more JC players than Nebraska’s three.
