Nebraska received a lot more depth in the running back room today as former Oregon running back Dante Dowdell committed to our beloved Huskers.

Dowdell played in six games last season, rushing 17 times for 93 yards, scoring one touchdown. He will have three years left to play at Nebraska.

Dowdell was the #9 running back nationally, ranked a four-star recruit out of Picayune, Mississippi in the 2023 recruiting class, according to 247. He is the 10th-ranked prospect in the transfer portal.

Dowdell’s commitment makes up for losing highly ranked Kewan Lacy to Missouri.

Nebraska should have ample depth at running back come the 2024 season. Gabe Ervin and Rahmir Johnson will return from injuries. Emmett Johnson looked pretty decent taking up the load of the running game, and then there’s Kwinten Ives.

Dowdell is listed at 6-2, 215 pounds, making him a good-sized dude to throw at Big Ten defensive lines!

Welcome to our beloved Huskers, Mr. Dowdell!
