2019 Season Outlook
Sophomore Caleb Tannor heads into the 2019 season as one of four outside linebackers with significant game experience. Tannor is expected to push for playing time at a position that also includes veteran seniors Alex Davis and Tyrin Ferguson and junior JoJo Domann. The 6-2 Tannor has good quickness off the edge, and has added 10 pounds of muscle during his time in Lincoln, giving him the necessary strength to be an effective pass rusher in the Big Ten Conference.
Tannor earned immediate playing time as a true freshman in 2018, appearing in all 12 games as a contributor on both special teams and defense. Tannor totaled 10 tackles, including nine tackles on defense and his first career tackle on kickoff coverage in the season opener against Colorado. Tannor recorded a tackle in nine of Nebraska’s 12 games, including a career-high two tackles in the Huskers’ win over Illinois. He added his first career sack against the Illini, which also marked his first career tackle for loss.
Before Nebraska (Miller Grove HS)
Tannor starred as a defensive end for Miller Grove High School in Georgia. Tannor was a standout pass rusher for Coach Justin Larmond at Miller Grove. He was named a first-team all-state selection in Class AAAAA, Georgia’s largest classification, by both the Georgia Sports Writers Association and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Tannor was tabbed as a four-star recruit by Rivals, ESPN and 247Sports. Rivals listed him as the No. 26 linebacker prospect in the country, while he came in at No. 19 among defensive ends in the 247Sports Composite rankings. Originally a Georgia commit, Tannor spurned offers from several SEC schools before choosing the Huskers on signing day in February. He also visited Auburn and Florida and had offers from Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU and Tennessee, among many others. Tannor was one of 88 high school players nationally selected to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.
Caleb is the son of Emmanuel and Felicia Tannor and he was born on Oct. 29, 1999. He is majoring in child, youth and family studies. Tannor has volunteered with Husker Heroes, the Nebraska Football Road Race, the Malone Center and local hospital outreach events.
