The Nebraska DL came to Lincoln from the 2021 class. Weaver was a 3-star EDGE out of high school per the 247Sports Composite. At 6-foot-8, 345 pounds he could be of use to the Nebraska offensive line.
It’s unclear at this time if Weaver will immediately start getting time in games as an offensive lineman, or if the team will decide to ease him into his new position.
We’ll keep you posted if anything new comes out.
