Nebraska’s special teams unit is getting some help, as the team landed a commitment from an Australian punter on Monday.
Daniel Cerni announced on Twitter that he has committed to Nebraska and will be a member of the squad for the upcoming 2020 season. He becomes the 25th pledge in the Huskers’ class.
“Extremely excited to announce that I have received and accepted a full scholarship to study and play football at the University of Nebraska for the upcoming season,” Cerin wrote on Twitter.

Nebraska’s punting room is fairly crowded entering the 2020 season. Along with Cerni, Nerbaska has William Przystup, Grant Detlefsen and Tyler Crawford battling to be the No. 1 punter.
Last season, Isaac Armstrong was the primary punter for the Huskers. He played in all 12 games and averaged 40.86 yards on 59 punts during the 2019 campaign. The four specialist will be battling to replace him.
