LINCOLN — He got strong the way a lot of former Nebraska offensive linemen did: by working as a kid on his grandpa's farm tending crops, baling hay.
Even if grandpa sold the farm four years ago, that's part of why the aptly named Tanner Farmer, Nebraska's fourth commit for the 2014 recruiting class, can bench press 225 pounds 33 times — strong numbers for the NFL Combine — despite lifting weights for just three years.
