The Nebraska Cornhuskers football team added another commit to its roster and this one was a bit of a surprise mainly because it happened so fast. One day, an offensive line transfer from Utah was visiting Lincoln. The next he was announcing he’d committed to Matt Rhule and company.
There’s very little doubt that the Huskers needed some more help on the offensive line, especially at tackle. They now have someone they can plug into the rotation and hope he can take over the full time job. If he doesn’t, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have four years to help him figure out how to do it.
Tyler Knaak is one of those guys that wasn’t talked about all that much when the transfer portal was red hot. But he’s an addition to the team that could be massive when the season rolls around.
At the very least, he fills a void that not getting Walter Rouse left. Even if he can’t step in right away like Rouse was expected to do.
