The Football Husker secures the commitment of Alabama transfer defensive lineman Stephon Wynn | Soccer
The Nebraska football team has made another significant addition to a much needed position.
Alabama transfer defensive lineman Stephon Wynn announced Sunday that he is joining the Huskers with a 35-second video featuring, among others, former Blackshirts Ndamukong Suh and Grant Wistrom.
The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Wynn, who spent four years in a stacked defensive line room in Alabama, will have two more seasons of eligibility with the Huskers.
A four-star IMG Academy prospect in 2018, Wynn has never seen any major playing time with the Crimson Tide thanks to the ridiculous depth Alabama racks up at the position each season.
In 2021, Wynn has appeared in seven games, recording five tackles and one rushing quarterback.
Nebraska is now two over the NCAA’s 2022 scholarship limit of 85 and will need to make some roster shake-ups to accommodate Williams. But with a full summer still to come, that leaves plenty of time to secure any potential places for Williams and any other potential transfers that join the scheme.
