Freakish JUCO DL Dylan Christley: ‘It’s between Nebraska and Maryland’

Nebraska football is looking to add freakish JUCO defensive lineman Dylan Christley as part of the 2024 class.

It’s been a productive offseason for Nebraska football, especially when it comes to the transfer portal and the 2024 recruiting class.

Yet, the Huskers might not be done. They are still looking for help along the defensive line and have set their sights on JUCO defensive lineman Dylan Christley.

Christley was offered recently by Nebraska football. He also has offers from Maryland, Texas State, New Mexico State, Wyoming, Colorado State, and UNLV. At 6-foot-1 275 pounds, Christley could be a major steal for the Huskers or whatever program lands him.

Last season, Chrisley had 11.5 sacks. He can do 40 bench press reps at 225 pounds and runs the 40-meter dash in 4.48. That’s not a typo and was confirmed to by Christley himself.

The 2024 recruit said he would be enrolling for the spring semester and expects to visit Lincoln soon.

“I will definitely visit Nebraska,” he said. “Just waiting on the visit date to be set. They believe I’m the next big thing, especially with the athleticism god blessed me with.”

Christley spent this past season playing for the Maricopa Mustangs. He’s got seven offers and reports a 3.2 grade point average on his Twitter account.

Looking at the depth chart, Nebraska doesn’t have a huge need but you can never have enough quality defensive linemen. Christley could play multiple spots along the defensive front and could be a starting five-technique.

Plus, elite pass rushers, especially on the interior, are pretty rare, and adding another talented pass rusher to the Blackshirts would be scary, at least for opposing quarterbacks.

Christley said a decision would come in the “next week or two” after taking visits and indicated that Nebraska football is near the top of the list.

“It’s between Nebraska and Maryland,” he said. “Nebraska is number one. I love the culture out there.”
