Blaise Gunnerson

Kuemper Catholic's Blaise Gunnerson, a Husker commit, became the second Nebraska pledge in the 2020 class to receive an invitation to the 2020 All-American Bowl. Lawrence (Kan.) Free State OL Turner Corcoran also received an invitation to the game.

Just a week after announcing his commitment to Nebraska, Carroll Kuemper star pass rusher Blaise Gunnerson received a significant accolade.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Gunnerson tweeted Tuesday that he has earned an invitation to the All-American Bowl, which features the nation's 100 best seniors.

He joins Lawrence (Kan.) Free State offensive lineman Turner Corcoran, a fellow Husker commit in the 2020 class, on the roster.
