Brant Banks

Brant Banks came to Nebraska as a defensive lineman, but he moved to offense and could be a key backup in 2020.

The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska football players you need to know heading into the 2020 season.

Brant Banks

6-7, 300 • Redshirt freshman • Offensive line

Many fans may know Banks from his three minutes of action with the Nebraska men’s basketball team in last spring’s Big Ten tournament. This fall he will make his case to be the backup at one of the most important positions in football — and lay the groundwork to potentially be a future multi-year starter.

Banks arrived in Lincoln from Houston in January 2019 as a defensive-line prospect but switched sides in fall camp. By spring, he was firmly No. 2 at left tackle behind Brenden Jaimes.

Just how far the future blind-side protector of Nebraska quarterbacks has come since 2019 — when he appeared in one game — should be a telling gauge of the team’s O-line depth this year and beyond.
