Offensive tackle was a position of critical need for Nebraska, and that question was not exactly definitively answered on signing day. Nebraska did sign 4-star tackle prospect David Knevel, who is an early enrollee in school. However, Knevel has limited experience, and it may be a stretch to ask him to contribute immediately.
Nebraska closed the recruiting season by signing 3-star prospects Dwayne Johnson and junior college transfer Chongo Kondolo at tackle as well. Both seem more likely to make an immediate impact, although they are not as highly rated as prospects long term.
Junior college transfer Matt Finnin, a 3-star recruit, also looks likely to compete for playing time in 2013. Nebraska’s other offensive line signing, 3-star Zach Hannon, appears to project as a guard instead of a tackle.
And I suppose it’s not fair to ignore Nebraska’s signing of 2-star Gabriel Miller as a specialist long snapper. Miller was one of the highest rated long snappers nationally, and it is encouraging to see Nebraska invest a scholarship on a specialist position that will be of great value to NU over the next four years.
