The news that the Nebraska football team is getting another defensive tackle was welcomed after a season of gashed defensive lines.

The Nebraska football team got some very good news late Monday night. Oklahoma State defensive tackle Darrion Daniels is set to join the Huskers soon as a graduate transfer. Going this route will allow him to be immediately eligible in 2019. He's far from the only graduate transfer to come to the Cornhuskers since Scott Frost and company arrived on campus and it will be interesting to see how he pans out next season.

He was a 4-star prospect out of high school

While he's never really lived up to the hype, he's got the talent to be really good. Out of Bishop Dunne, in Dallas, he was a 4-star in 247Sports composite rankings and the 20th ranked defensive tackle in the 2015 class.

He's got the family connection

Damion Daniels is a defensive prospect for the Huskers who looks to be growing into a role for 2019. Now he will have a chance to play alongside his brother after they initially went their separate ways.
