Hometown: El Dorado, Kansas
School: Butler CC
The skinny: Honas is considered by some to be the best junior college linebacker in this class. He had 90-plus tackles for Butler (Kansas) Community College and is being recruited heavily in the Midwest. There’s some thinking that he may be a better fit for a 4-3 – Iowa is recruiting him hard to that kind of system – but the Huskers’ contention is that they’ll find a way to use a really good player. Honas visited NU Dec. 16.
Offers of note: Iowa, Kansas State, Arkansas, California, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin.
Lead recruiter: Ryan Held.
