Huskers offer JUCO DT Taylor Lewis

Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander extended an offer to junior college defensive tackle Taylor Lewis. Lewis is getting very popular lately. The 6-foot-3 and 295-pound defensive tackle picked up an offer from Oregon State yesterday and the Huskers earlier today.

Nebraska has offered JUCO defensive tackle Taylor Lewis from Santa Clarita (Calif.) College of the Canyons. The Huskers are trying to add some additional bodies to the defensive line room following the spring.

Lewis had 19 total tackles including three tackles for a loss, two sacks and batted down a pass. His presence on the defensive line helped College of the Canyons to an 8-3 record last year.

The JUCO defensive tackle is immediately eligible and according to another recent interview Lewis is 'Definitely looking to make a decision as soon as possible, football is around the corner, and I want to be locked in impacting a program right away.'

Lewis is up to 16 offers after a season that led to him earning second team All-American honors by JCGridiron.
