Leading up to the 2022 season, Cornhuskers Wire will be taking a closer look at many players on Nebraska’s current roster.

Each profile will cover where the player is from, how recruiting websites rated them coming out of high school, their career statistics, and what role they will play for head coach Scott Frost this season.

Today, we will take a look at running back Anthony Grant. Grant transferred to the Cornhuskers this offseason. Grant began his college career at Florida State. In 2020, he transferred to New Mexico Military Institute, where he played two seasons.

Without further ado, let’s dive in. Here is Anthony Grant’s snapshot player profile.

Depth Chart Overview

As the number one ranked JUCO running back in the country, Grant will come in with high expectations. He has already proven himself to be a productive player at the college level. Grant averaged a blistering 7.2 yards per carry last season at New Mexico Military Institute. In 2021, he was named the NJCAA Football Division I Offensive Player of the Year.

Grant will have to compete for snaps with Rahmir Johnson, Jaquez Yant, and Gabe Ervin Jr. Due to his past performance, Johnson is the safest bet to lead Nebraska’s backfield, but Grant is certainly a player to watch.
