Nebraska football got a late addition after yesterday's Early Signing Day with JUCO linebacker Will Honas.

Honas, one of the nation's top junior college linebackers, spent the last two seasons at Butler Community College in Kansas. 

Honas racked up 96 tackles in 11 games in 2017, including 3.0 sacks and a pair of interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown. He averaged 8.7 tackles per game and his 96 total tackles ranked No. 21 in the country. In his first season at Butler in 2016, Honas recorded 21 tackles and recovered a fumble.

The 6'2, 225 pound linebacker had more than a dozen scholarship offers and chose Nebraska after also visiting Arkansas, Iowa and Kansas State
