Nebraska football wasn't done adding to its roster following early signing day. Today, the Huskers officially confirmed the addition of defensive lineman Darrion Daniels.

Daniels is a graduate transfer from Oklahoma State. He is also the older brother of Nebraska defensive lineman Damion Daniels.

News that the elder Daniels was transferring to Nebraska broke earlier this month. The Huskers announced his arrival earlier today.

In 64 career games for Oklahoma State, Darrion Daniels has recorded 64 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, and two sacks. Injuries have limited him the last two years, but he should be able to be a contributor for the Huskers in 2019. His brother is certainly excited to be teaming up with him.

Nebraska finished the 2018 season with a 4-8 record under first-year head coach Scott Frost.

However, the Huskers finished with four wins in its last six games to establish some momentum heading into the offseason. They could be a preseason top 25 team come August.
