Nebraska Kearney senior offensive linemen Cole Manhart is one of 10 Division II players taking part in this Saturday’s NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson, CA. Manhart is on the “National” team coached by former NFL head coach Mike Martz. Manhart’s teammate is Nebraska linebacker Zaire Anderson. The game kicks off Saturday at 3:00 p.m. Central and can be seen live on ESPN 2.
New defensive coordinator Mark Banker could get some outside help at the linebacker position. Kaiwan Lewis, a regular contributor at linebacker for South Carolina, is transferring from the Gamecocks, and Nebraska is on his short list. Lewis is graduating from USC and has a year of eligibility remaining. Lewis is also looking at Rutgers and Penn State maybe some West Coast programs.
