DL | Mosai Newsom
Hometown: Waverly, Iowa
School: Waverly-Shell Rock
Date Committed: July 23
Offers of note: Iowa, Northwestern, Iowa State.
Lead recruiter: Erik Chinander.
Newsom grew up right down the road from Iowa, but defensive coordinator Erik Chinander – himself an Iowa native, convinced the defensive end to come to Nebraska. Newsom visited frequently this spring and committed just before his senior season. He is perhaps a bit of a tweener — not prototypical length and mass for a defensive end but not a stand-up linebacker in a 3-4 — but Nebraska likes his upside.
