Dalton Keene, an athlete that could play tight end, linebacker or defensive end in college, received an offer from the Huskers on Feb. 11, 2016.

Nebraska was the first Power Five school to offer Keene. He made his first visit to Lincoln on April 16, 2016, for the spring game.

Offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf, defensive line coach John Parrella and tight ends coach Tavita Thompson have all helped recruit Keene to Nebraska. That means the Huskers are likely interested in him playing either side of the ball on the next level.

Keene was considered one of the top performers at the U.S. Army National Combine in January 2016. There he ran a 40-yard dash under 5.0 seconds and had a vertical jump of 34 inches.

Keene was an All-Conference selection as a linebacker after his junior year.

Two days after his visit to Nebraska, Keene committed to Virginia Tech on April 18, 2016. His father was college roommates at Murray State with Virginia Tech defensive line coach Charley Wiles.
