6-2, 210 • Sophomore • outside linebacker
The impact wasn’t as immediate as the hype. But what does Year 2 have in store for the four-star recruit who turned down Florida, Auburn and other SEC schools to become a Husker? Tannor was a major signing day victory in 2018, and the Georgia native appeared in all 12 games as a true freshman. But he wasn’t the tackle-for-loss machine his prep stats and athletic frame suggested last fall, landing one among his 10 stops. Now the sophomore becomes an interesting test case for development under the second-year coaching staff. Another offseason of strength training and familiarity with the scheme gives him the potential to become one of the team’s most valuable defenders.
