Nebraska football defensive back Omar Brown accepted his invite to play in the 2024 East-West Shrine Bowl on Friday,
Brown declared for the NFL Draft earlier this month, and will now get a chance to showcase his skills. He is coming off a productive 2023 season that saw him become a key part of the Nebraska football defense. He recorded 51 total tackles, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and an interception last season.
His best game came against Louisiana Tech. He recorded seven tackles and a forced fumble on the day. From there, he was able to build on his efforts and have a solid season. Brown’s play helped solidify the defensive backfield for Nebraska, and his play was complemented by strong efforts from the defensive front seven.
He came to Nebraska in 2022 after three seasons at UNI. He was a standout there as well, recording six interceptions in his freshman season and being named to the FCS All-American first-team by Phil Steele in 2019.

Nebraska football has had players in the game recently, as tight and Travis Vololek was named to the game last year along with edge rusher Ochaun Mathis.
Brown’s stock is extremely high at the moment, and this bowl game could elevate him even more. Teams are looking for aggressive defensive backs, and Brown has the instincts and ability to be able to play that role.
It will be interesting to see what Brown can do with an opportunity like this. He has the talent, and he has the skill set. Now, it’s all about being seen on a national scale.
