Offensive guard Chongo Kondolo will head into his senior season in hopes of earning a starting job for the Huskers. Kondolo was Nebraska’s top reserve at guard for much of the 2014 season, backing up senior starters Jake Cotton and Mike Moudy. With both of those players exhausting their eligibility, the guard positions are wide open heading into the 2015 campaign.
The 6-4, 300-pound Kondolo also saw work on Nebraska’s kicking units as a blocker. Kondolo came to Nebraska from Fresno City College and was one of the top junior college offensive line recruits in 2013.
Kondolo played in every game, helping power Nebraska to top-20 national rankings in scoring and rushing offense. The line helped Ameer Abdullah top 1,000 rushing yards for the third consecutive season. Kondolo saw his most extensive action in October games against Northwestern and Rutgers, helping NU dominate the line of scrimmage in the second half at Northwestern, while Abdullah topped 200 rushing yards against Rutgers.
Kondolo joined Nebraska in 2013, but sat out the season as a redshirt. Before Nebraska
