» Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Spring 2019)
2019 Season Outlook
A member of the 2019 recruiting class, Brant Banks joined the Nebraska program in January and participated in spring practice. The 6-7, 300-pound Banks joined the Huskers as a defensive lineman but has made the switch to the offensive line and is expected to work at tackle. Banks was a two-way standout for Westbury Christian High School in Houston before coming to Nebraska.
He impressed in the classroom in his first semester, earning a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll with a 3.835 grade-point average.
Banks was a versatile player for Westbury Christian High School in Houston, playing on the offensive line, defensive line and tight end. An all-district performer as both an offensive and defensive lineman, Banks is expected to begin his Nebraska career on the defensive line, where he brings great size and athleticism to the position.
As a senior, Banks was a first-team all-district honoree at offensive tackle for Westbury Christian. Banks was a first-team all-district offensive lineman as a junior and a second-team pick as a defensive lineman, when he helped Westbury Christian to the state playoffs. He also earned second-team all-state honors from the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools as a junior.
Banks was considered a three-star recruit, and Rivals ranked him among the top 50 offensive tackles in the country and the top 70 players in the state of Texas. He held more than a dozen scholarship offers and chose Nebraska after also visiting Baylor and Missouri.
Brant was born on May 1, 2000, and is the son of Todd and Randa Banks. He is a management major.
