The Huskers picked up their 12th player for the 2013 recruiting class. He’s 6’1, 210 pound linebacker Marcus Newby from Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, MD. Newby had his choices narrowed down to Nebraska and Penn State, but made up his mind after a visit during Big Red Weekend in June.
Newby is the third linebacker to join this recruiting class, along with Lincoln Southwest’s Josh Banderas and Youngstown, OH Cardinal Mooney’s Courtney Love. Newby could play both strong or weak side linebacker.
