LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The second half of Nebraska’s dynamic safety duo will be back next season.

Just a couple hours after fellow senior defensive back Deontai Williams announced his return, Marquel Dismuke did the same on Wednesday.

Dismuke was an honorable-mention All-Big Ten selection in 2020. He started all eight games to stretch his streak to 20 consecutive starts at safety. He ranked fourth on the team with 47 tackles and set career highs with 4.0 tackles for loss and four pass breakups.

Dismuke joins Williams, junior defensive back Cam Taylor-Britt and senior outside linebacker JoJo Domann as the Husker defensive players to return for an extra season.
