Junior college linebacker Will Honas signed with Nebraska on Dec. 21, 2017.

Honas chose the Huskers over Iowa, Kansas State and Wisconsin.

He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Considered one of the nation's top juco linebackers, Honas comes from Butler (Kan.) Community College. He had 96 tackles in 11 games for Butler last season.

Honas played high school ball for Bishop Carroll in Wichita.

Honas was one of the first recruits targeted by Scott Frost's new coaching staff. He received his scholarship offer on Dec. 3, the day Frost was formally introduced as the Husker football coach.

Honas was one of seven official visitors at Nebraska last weekend. He had visited Iowa the weekend before that and Kansas State numerous other times. Wisconsin entered the mix with a late scholarship offer that gave Honas some pause. He told The World-Herald on Wednesday that he might wait until January to make a decision so he could give Wisconsin proper consideration.

But he instead chose to make things official with the Huskers on Thursday and became the fourth juco player in the class. He's joined by Arizona Western's Greg Bell and Jaron Woodyard, and Jones County's Deontai Williams.

Nebraska officially signed 10 players on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period. Scott Frost said the final class will likely have more than 20 members by February.

Honas could help fill the void left behind by Chris Weber, who started all 12 games at inside linebacker as a senior last season and led the team with 87 total tackles. Nebraska also has inside linebackers Dedrick Young, Mohamed Barry, Avery Roberts and Andrew Ward on the roster for next season.
