Nebraska has officially welcomed former Oklahoma State defensive tackle Darrion Daniels to the roster.
Friday morning, the Huskers officially announced that Daniels had joined the program as a graduate transfer. He joins his younger brother, Damion, who was a redshirt freshman in 2018. Daniels informed the Oklahoma State coaching staff of his intent to transfer earlier this month.
As a graduate transfer, Daniels will be eligible to play in the 2019 season.

Daniels started the first four games of the 2018 season for the Cowboys but an injury to his pinky finger sidelined him for some time. He was able to take advantage of the new redshirt rule and retain his final season of eligibility.
In those four games, Daniels registered seven tackles and a sack. In his four seasons with Oklahoma State, the defensive tackle registered 64 stops and 9.5 tackles for loss.
The arrival of Daniels helps bolster a Nebraska defense that struggled mightily in 2018, surrendering 31.3 points and 433 yards per game for the year. Both of those numbers ranked 12th in the B1G.
With his first full year on the recruiting trail, Scott Frost inked a top 25 class and the 2019 group also ranks fourth in the B1G.
