Nebraska landed a big piece of its signing day puzzle in Georgia 4-star defender Caleb Tannor this morning. At 6’3 225lbs Tannor is projected as an outside linebacker for the Huskers and should fit nicely into the Big Red’s 3-4 scheme.
Frost and his staff pulled off a coup with Tannor as its one thing to beat out some of the top schools in the SEC for a player let alone pull any recruit out of Georgia. Tannor selected the Huskers over Auburn and Florida who were rumored to have the edge in his recruitment up until the last few days.

Tannor’s high school coach at Miller Grove, Justin Larmond, spoke highly of Caleb in a recent interview raved about his senior defender, “He just goes balls to the wall. He goes hard. He takes game reps. And you appreciate that from him. He’s a practice player. I think in 2018 it’s hard to find real practice players that actually practice Monday through Thursday and play on Friday,” Larmond said.
Aside from his relentless motor, Tannor is capable of sliding down outside the defensive end and applying pressure to an offense with his edge rushing skills.
If being a terrific football player wasn’t enough, Larmond gushed about Tannor off the field as much as he did on it, “He’s just a really good person. He’s a hard worker. A real good guy.”
With Tannor’s commitment, the Huskers arent quite done recruiting linebackers in the 2018 class. They picked up junior college inside linebacker Will Honas in December and are awaiting news from OLB Javontae Jean-Baptiste this morning.
