Nebraska Football in touch with former Michigan State lineman

Nebraska football may be looking for offensive line help in the portal, as former Michigan State offensive lineman Keyshawn Blackstock tweeted that he received an offer from the Huskers.

Blackstock entered the portal on October 24. He is a former four-star recruit, and played for Coffeyville Community College. He was the backup left tackle for Michigan State and played and the first four games of this season.

It’s interesting that he has two seasons of eligibility remaining. This is due to his opportunity to take a redshirt this year. He would give the Nebraska football program a chance to work with him at an extensive level and allow him to be on the line for multiple seasons.

Blackstock would be a solid get for Nebraska football

Nebraska football needs help on the line, as Turner Corcoran is one of several players out for the season. The program needs offensive line depth in the worst way, and Blackstock could help with that. He still has a ton of potential, given that he was a former four-star recruit. He could also have an opportunity to play in the near future, given that Corcoran is a junior.

It’s nice to see that Nebraska quickly offered Blackstock. Whether or not he chooses to go to Lincoln remains to be seen. Nevertheless, there is a need here.  Nebraska’s offensive line has been banged up for several years now, and depth has always seemed to be an issue. Blackstock could be a force, as he measures in at 6-foot-5, 315 pounds.

Blackstock’s recruitment will be one worth watching. It’s safe to say Nebraska is very much in the mix. This would be a big get for a line that desperately needs additional depth and solid players. Lincoln would also give Blackstock an opportunity to turn things around.

Major props to Nebraska for acting so quickly in getting an offer out there.
