Oklahoma State defensive lineman Darrion Daniels has joined Nebraska as a graduate transfer.

Oklahoma State defensive tackle Darrion Daniels plans to enroll at Nebraska as a graduate transfer for his senior season in 2019, according to GoPokes.com and the Tulsa World.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder is the older brother of Husker sophomore nose tackle Damion Daniels.

Darrion Daniels, who was a four-star recruit from Bishop-Dunne High School in Dallas, played four seasons for Oklahoma State, though his senior year was cut short by a finger injury suffered in practice the week before the fifth game this season. He is allowed by NCAA rules to maintain his season of eligibility because he played in only four games.

In four games this season, he made seven tackles and one sack.

In nine games in 2017, Daniels recorded 26 tackles, including five for losses. He started 10 games that year.

Daniels is regarded as a strong vocal leader. According to the Tulsa World, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy felt strongly enough about Daniels' leadership to take the injured player to road games this season against Baylor, Oklahoma and TCU, giving a player in street clothes one of 75 spots on the travel roster.

OSU classes end later this week and finals run through Dec. 14.
