With 3 of its 4 starters in the secondary departing, Nebraska entered into the offseason in serious need of some defensive back help. On Tuesday, it secured its 2nd pledge in as many days from a defensive back, this time from the junior college ranks.

DeShon Singleton, a defensive back from Hutchinson Community College, announced he has committed to the Huskers.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Singleton recently finished up his freshman season at Hutchinson. He put up 21 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 2 pass breakups, and 2 interceptions in 9 appearances. According to 247Sports, Singleton is a full qualifier and is looking to enroll in January ahead of spring ball. He’ll have 3 years of eligibility.

A 3-star safety in the 247 Composite, Singleton is the 20th-ranked JUCO player in the 2022 class and the 4th-rated safety. He held offers from Kansas and Kansas State, among others.

For the Huskers, Singleton is the 3rd defensive back addition since the season ended. Tommi Hill, a former Arizona State corner, has committed to transfer to Lincoln, and the 2022 class also features 3-star corner Malcolm Hartzog.

NU will be looking to replace both of its safeties and one corner from this season’s team. Cam Taylor-Britt is jumping to the NFL after 4 seasons while super senior safeties Deontai Williams and Marquel Dismuke have both exhausted their eligibilities. Singleton is the 11th known commitment for the Huskers’ 2022 class.
