Junior Jay Guy is among a group of defensive tackles who will look to make a push for playing time on the defensive interior this spring. Beyond senior Thad Randle, the tackle spot figures to have several new faces in 2013, and Guy is hoping to take advantage of that opportunity. The 6-1, 290-pound Guy has provided depth at tackle the past two seasons, while seeing limited game action.
Guy added depth at defensive tackle and played in NU’s win over Idaho State.
2011 (Redshirt Freshman)
Guy did not appear in the first six games, but saw action against Minnesota, Michigan State and Iowa after injuries struck the NU defensive front. Guy did not make a tackle, but took key snaps in those contests.
Guy redshirted in his first season in the program after enrolling at Nebraska at mid-year.
Before Nebraska (Eisenhower HS)
Guy was a dominant presence on the defensive line for Coach Ray Evans at Eisenhower High School in greater Houston. Guy made 74 tackles as a senior, including 50 solo stops, and five sacks. His play helped the Eagles to a 6-5 record in 2009, and a berth in the Class 5A state playoffs. Guy was the District 19 5A Defensive MVP and one of 10 finalists for the Touchdown Club of Houston Defensive Player of the Year. Guy was a first-team all-district pick as both a junior and senior, was chosen second-team all-greater Houston by the Houston Chronicle and was an honorable-mention Class 5A all-state selection.
Guy was a key player for Eisenhower since his sophomore year when he was a second-team all-district selection. He was regarded as one of the top 40 defensive tackles in the country and among the top 75 players in the state of Texas. Guy also visited UCLA and California and had scholarship offers from dozens of schools.
Jay is the son of Jesse and Deborah Guy, and he was born on April 9, 1992. A business administration major, Guy has volunteered time with hospital and elementary school visits, and School is Cool Week.
