Akol Arop will miss the 2020-21 season following knee surgery last week. Arop had the procedure to address chronic issues with his left knee. According to Athletic Trainer R.J. Pietig, the surgery was a success and the recovery should take six months. With Trevor Lakes redshirting this season, this will leave Nebraska with 11 available scholarship players for this season.
He'll enter the 2021-22 season as a redshirt sophomore.
