Drew is expected to play a huge part in the Cornhuskers’ defense this upcoming season. The 6-foot-2, 280 lb. junior appeared in 23 games for the Red Raiders amassing 55 tackles and 10 quarterback hurries.
Along with Drew, the Cornhuskers also added Brandon Moore. Moore played for Central Florida and Florida State and he walked on to Nebraska.
The Huskers’ defense wasn’t horrible in 2021. They finished 47th in the country in total defense giving up about 366 yards per game, but these new additions should help to improve those stats.
Drew is expected to fill the spot of Casey Rogers who transferred out of the program to Oregon. Who knows how good this defense could have been if Rogers had stayed along with Drew? Drew will need to be a quick learner to be ready for the season opener in Week 0.

Drew should be the anchor for this defense and from the looks of it, he is ready to be the man the Cornhuskers need. This defense needs to continue to progress if they plan to make a bowl game this year and Drew might be the perfect fit.
