No Letdown Here: Husker Football Program Continues to Collect the Best Talent in the State – Without Having to Pay a Dime for It!
The allure of donning the white helmet embossed with that big red N and playing in front of eighty thousand plus screaming fans remains an intoxicating elixir. Even during the current hard economic times student athletes and their parent/guardians are willing to push aside – free – scholarship monies for the opportunity to – pay – for their education at Nebraska – just so long as they are able to wear that helmet.
Evidence of the power of “The Husker Pull” is the haul of outstanding Nebraska high school football players that Bo Pelini and his staff have managed to convince to walk-on at NU.
This may be Bo’s best Nebraska high school walk-on class yet with at least one of his catch, Dylan Utter, having in hand a D-1A offer from Army. In addition, several others in this class are holding D-1AA offers.
In my opinion the Nebraska high school walk-ons from the class of 2012 show more potential for successful development than any of Pelini’s previous walk-on classes. Impressive, considering that his previous walk-on classes feature players like Elkhorn’s Spencer Long (OL) and Trevor Roach (LB) who have already earned significant playing time.
