He joins Lawrence (Kan.) Free State offensive lineman Turner Corcoran, a fellow Husker commit in the 2020 class, on the roster.

The 2020 All-American Bowl will be held at noon on Jan. 4, 2020, in San Antonio. It will be broadcast on NBC.

Alumni of the All-American Bowl include Odell Beckham, Andrew Luck, Tim Tebow, Jalen Ramsey and Sam Darnold.

Husker freshmen Wan'Dale Robinson, Noa Pola-Gates and Bryce Benhart were on the 2019 roster.

Council Bluffs Lewis Central defensive tackle Logan Jones, an Iowa commit, also received an All-American Bowl invitation.
