2010 Outlook
Sophomore Matt Holt burst onto the scene as a true freshman in 2008, playing a key role at linebacker in the middle of the season, before missing the final three games with a shoulder injury. Holt returned to the practice field for spring ball, but suffered a second shoulder injury last summer, forcing him to the sidelines in 2009.

This spring the 6-0, 210-pound Holt will be part of a wide-open race for playing time at linebacker. Holt has outstanding speed and could be a factor in Nebraska's nickel or dime packages.

2009 (Redshirt)
Holt sat out the season after off-season shoulder surgery.

2008 (Freshman)
Holt played in nine games, beginning the year as a contributor on Nebraska's kickoff coverage unit. After injuries shuffled the lineup at linebacker, Holt was forced into action at the start of Big 12 play. He responded with three unassisted tackles against Missouri and eight tackles, including seven solo stops, in NU's overtime loss at No. 7 Texas Tech. Holt finished the year with 14 total tackles, including 11 solos. He did not play in Nebraska's final three games because of a shoulder injury.

Before Nebraska (Lee’s Summit West HS)
Matt Holt originally committed to South Dakota State, before deciding to walk on at Nebraska. As a senior at Lee’s Summit West, Holt rushed for 1,529 yards and 24 touchdowns, leading his team to a perfect season and a Class 4 Missouri state title.

The 6-0, 200-pound running back was named to the MSAA’s (Missouri Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association) first-team all-state team for Class 4A and honorable-mention all-metro by the Kansas City Star.
