BOOM! Florida edge rusher Patrick Payton is N!

Huskers add elite pass rusher from football powerhouse Miami Northwestern


Great news from the Sunshine State!

Nebraska picks up a commitment from Patrick Payton, a 6'5 205 lb OLB/DE from Miami, Florida. He attended Miami High his first 3 seasons but transferred to national powerhouse Miami Northwestern in January.

Having seen him in person, he is a BEAST. I'm not gonna flat out compare him to Randy Gregory because that'll get you guys a tad bit too excited, but he has that potential once he hits a college strength program.

Rated a high 3 star by both Rivals & 247, Payton burst onto the scene in 2019 after accumulating 17.5 sacks last season, including a 5 sack performance at crosstown rival & local powerhouse Columbus High and was named to the 8A-5A All-Dade first team by the Miami Herald.

He held offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Kansas, Miami, Mississippi State, Penn State, Pitt and UCF.

Welcome to Nebraska, Patrick! GO BIG RED!!!!!!
