Nebraska’s defense got a big boost on Wednesday when it was announced Senior safeties Marquel Dismuke and Deontai Williams will return to the Huskers in 2021.

Williams played in all eight games this past season and started seven of them. Williams was Big Ten honorable mention in 2020.

Dismuke made eight starts this last year with 47 tackles , with four tackles for a loss and four pass break-ups.

The duo joins linebacker JoJo Doman and defensive back Cam Taylor-Britt who have both said they will return next season. That leaves linebacker Will Honas and defensive lineman Ben Stille as those left to make a decision.

Collin Miller, with retirement, and DeCaprio Bootle, declaring for the NFL, are the only two known defenders not returning next year.
