Will Honas joins Nebraska as one of the nation’s top junior college linebackers. Honas spent the past two seasons at Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kan., where he helped coach Tim Schaffner’s squad to a 15-8 record.

In 2017, Honas totaled 96 tackles in 11 games, including 3.0 sacks and a pair of interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown. He averaged 8.7 tackles per game and his 96 total tackles ranked 21st nationally. In his first season at Butler in 2016, Honas recorded 21 tackles and recovered a fumble.

Honas was regarded as a four-star prospect by ESPN. He was ranked as the top junior college inside linebacker by both ESPN and 247 Sports and both services also listed Honas among the nation’s top 35 overall junior college recruits. Honas had more than a dozen scholarship offers and chose Nebraska after also visiting Arkansas, Iowa and Kansas State. Before enrolling at Butler, Honas played his prep ball for Bishop Carroll High School in Wichita.
