Nebraska Football: Deontai Williams Returning for 2021 Season

The third big “Senior opt-back-in” on defense for Nebraska

The hammer of the Nebraska defense decided he wanted to pound a few more nails.

Deontai Williams announced on twitter today that there is some unfinished business to attend to at Nebraska.

This is a big deal for a Nebraska team that might have to lean on their defense in 2021 even more until the Husker offense can get things figured out. With the return of Cam Taylor-Britt, JoJo Domann and Deontai Williams the Nebraska secondary is setting up nicely.

At this point we have not heard anything official from Marquel Dismuke, Ben Stille or Will Honas but until we hear differently I feel they may be coming back for 2021. Hopefully I am right on this one.

Williams was a Big Ten All-Conference Honorable Mention in 2020. He played in every game and had 51 total tackles on the season.

Looking forward to this Blackshirt group in 2021.

Now about that offense...
