Nebraska made the cut for one of its top outside linebacker targets in the 2021 class.
Pass rusher TJ Bollers of Iowa’s Clear Creek-Amana High School, who has visited NU multiple times, released his top six Tuesday. Joining NU on the list were Iowa State, Wisconsin, Northwestern, California and Alabama.
Hometown Iowa, where Bollers’ dad played college football, wasn’t among the six. Bollers grew up around the Hawkeye program but is clearly looking to forge his own path in the sport.
Bollers plans on taking official visits, though it’s not clear whether he’ll be able to do so before the 2020 season because of the coronavirus pandemic and measures designed to slow the spread of the disease.
