Nebraska may not be done adding reinforcements from the transfer portal just yet.
The Huskers on Tuesday are set to host offensive tackle Tyler Knaak for a visit, per a team source. The 6-foot-6, 305-pounder was a three-star prospect in the 2022 class who redshirted last season at Utah and has four years of eligibility remaining.
Knaak, out of Brighton High School in Salt Lake City, committed to his hometown team despite fielding more than a dozen offers and taking official trips to USC, Oregon State, Virginia and Arizona State in a recruitment that heated up late in the process.
The blocker is generally viewed as more of a long-term project with upside — he switched from defensive line to offense before his senior season and didn’t log a snap in his first college campaign.
Knaak reported various portal offers on social media in recent weeks including Kentucky, Buffalo, Hawaii and others.

Nebraska coach Matt Rhule and his staff added 11 portal transfers in December and January but none since as they whittled their scholarship numbers down from the low 100s to — or potentially below — the 85-man limit.
The Huskers are short on younger tackles behind established veterans in fifth-year junior Bryce Benhart and fourth-year junior Turner Corcoran along with third-year sophomore Teddy Prochazka. NU brought in Arizona State transfer Ben Scott in the offseason as the likely starter at center as well.
