Ryan Held dips into the JUCO ranks to shore up the defensive backs position for this fall.

#All’N

Nebraska’s Ryan Held continues to shop the JUCO ranks to fill out Nebraska’s roster by heading down to Arizona.

A former 2* out of DC, he is at least 6’ 3”, bringing a good size to the team at a position of need. The former Kentucky Wildcat spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons at Mesa Community College. He is eligible immediately and will play this fall for the Cornhuskers after enrolling today. He has three years to play three.

Here are his stats from his 2017 season at Mesa.
