Offensive guard Chongo Kondolo heads into his senior season hoping to earn 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 and Kondolo had a strong spring practice session.
The 6-4, 300-pound Kondolo came to Nebraska from Fresno City College and was one of the top junior college offensive line recruits in 2013. Kondolo is on track to earn his degree in sociology in December.
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 against Northwestern and Rutgers. NU dominated the line of scrimmage in the second half at Northwestern, while Abdullah topped 200 rushing yards against Rutgers. Kondolo also saw action on kicking units.
Kondolo joined Nebraska in 2013, but sat out the season as a redshirt.
Before Nebraska (Creekview HS/Fresno City College)
Kondolo was a standout tackle at Fresno City College in 2011 and 2012, helping Coach Tony Caviglia’s team rank among the top squads in the California junior college ranks. In 2012, Fresno City College went 8-3 behind a strong offense that averaged more than 30 points per game. Kondolo was a first-team All-America choice by the California Community College Coaches Association, and he earned first-team Valley all-conference honors. Kondolo was also a key performer in 2011, when Fresno went 10-0 in the regular season.
Kondolo had a standout prep career at Creekview High School in Carrollton, Texas, where he played for Coach Kyle Geller. Kondolo was listed as the sixth-best offensive tackle prospect by 247 Sports. Kondolo also visited BYU, Illinois, Tennessee and Utah State and had offers from Florida State and Texas Tech.
The son of Hazel Muntemba, Chongo was born on Aug. 9, 1993. He has volunteered his time with Make-A-Wish, Husker Heroes, Husker Hotline, Pilger tornado relief and local hospital and community rec center outreach events. Kondolo has been named to the Brook Berringer and Tom Osborne Citizenship Teams the past two years.
