Nebraska Football: Defensive Lineman Ty Robinson Announces He Plans on Returning to the Huskers for His Final Season

NCAA Football: Maryland at Nebraska Dylan Widger-USA TODAY Sports

Well this is pretty big news.

Today at the weekly press conference — Ty Robinson walked up to the podium and dropped some great news for Nebraska football and he announced that he plans on returning to play next season.

It appears that this decision largely stems form the fact that Ty Robinson was out for a couple months with an injury during this last off-season and that that lack of development and growth has largely hindered his production.

Since he would like to play in the NFL someday (and I believe he would get drafted if he did some out this season) that having a full off-season of strength and development likely sets him up in a better position for the following year’s draft.

Here is on his 2023 season so far:

Ty Robinson, who has already earned his college degree, has played in every game with 10 starts. He enters the Iowa game with 27 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss, 1.0 sack and a team-high nine quarterback hurries. Robinson has tied his career high int ackles and TFLs while setting a career high with five pass breakups.

Robinson started at Minnesota, but was disqualified in the second half due to a targeting penalty. Robinson returned to play the second half at Colorado and had two solo tackles. Against Northern Illinois, Robinson made two tackles, including a half sack. He recorded three tackles against Louisiana Tech. Robinson totaled three tackles with a half TFL against No. 2 Michigan. At Illinois, he recorded three tackles and a career-high three quarterback hurries. Robinson had a half sack for an eight-yard loss and a pass breakup against Northwestern. He made one tackle against Purdue. Robinson had three tackles and one quarterback hurry at Michigan State. He set career highs with seven tackles, 1.5 TFLs and two pass breakups against Maryland while also recovering a fumble. RObinson had two tackles, a five-yard tackle for loss and two more pass breakups at Wisconsin.

Robinson is wearing the No. 9 this season, as he was one of 10 Huskers to earn a single-digit number in a team vote selecting him as one of Nebraska’s “toughest” players.
