Husker Camp Countdown: No. 34 Deontre Thomas

Husker Camp Countdown: No. 34 Deontre Thomas

Deontre Thomas

Deontre Thomas will be a key part of Nebraska's defensive line rotation.

No. 34 of the Husker Camp Countdown highlights defensive lineman Deontre Thomas.

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

Deontre Thomas

6-3, 295 • Junior • Defensive line

Maybe this is when it all comes together for Thomas.

A fifth-year defender who was recruited to a 4-3 scheme, he had large chunks of his 2018 and 2020 seasons stolen by injuries.

Once undersized, he’s grown into his frame and was productive on the edge of NU’s three-man fronts in 2019.

Thomas probably won’t start for the Huskers, but he will be a key part of a line rotation that regularly cycles between six and eight big men. Health just needs to cooperate.
