Honas only appeared in four games last season and racked up 15 tackles, including one for loss. A knee injury against Purdue put him out the rest of the year. But because he only played in four games, he retained his redshirt and will have two years to make his mark in Lincoln. The Butler Community College transfer was back from that knee injury and practiced this spring. He’ll have to beat out Collin Miller and true freshmen Jackson Hannah and Garrett Snodgrass for the starting spot.
