Anyone know anything about Hughes? Don't see many walk-ons from out of state, and almost none from outside the midwest. Does he have any family ties to Nebraska? related to Tyrone?

 

Keegan Hughes

6-1, 175, WR, Roswell, Ga. (Roswell HS)

 

Keegan Hughes will join the Husker program from Roswell (Ga.) High School.

A standout at the wide receiver position, Hughes helped Roswell to a 10-1

record and a berth in the playoffs in Georgia’s largest football class. Hughes

caught 25 passes for 750 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior and has total

75 receptions for more than 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns over the past

three seasons. Hughes earned first-team All-North Fulton County as a junior

and senior. He also started at safety as a freshman. Hughes is also a standout

on his high school’s baseball team, starting since his freshman season.

Hughes, who was coached by Leo Barker, is one of three wide receivers who

are walking on at NU in this year’s class. Hughes turned down a scholarship

offer from the Air Force Academy.

Per big red wrap up Keegan used to date Jamrog's niece for like 2 years. Not sure he still is or not, sounded like it was past tense, but I guess that's how he is linked and it came about.

I almost pissed my pants laughing when I was on Huskers.com and saw this kids stats

height

Austin Williams DB 5"2 190 Omaha, Neb. (Burke HS)

 

I was at first like how in the hell did he even get asked to walk on but after looking at his profile I see it was a type O and he is 6"2.

 

All I could do was picture cartman from southpark at the stats they had on him.

I like the 3 you mentioned plus Schrodt. He's got track speed and would be nice if he could translate it into Football Speed.

yup. there definitely hasn't been anyone else grab the title of quarterback of the future, but it's awfully hard to see kellog overtaking martinez and green for playing time. never say never though. no one thought joe gans was worth a darn as late has his redshirt sophomore year, and from the sounds of things, kellog's a decent passer.

who are the best walk ons in this class ?

I've seen the following listed as the top five and have no reason to disagree:

David Pillen

Damon Bechtold

Ronnell Grixby

Jordan Makovicka

Jeremy Wallace

Zero for five on these guys making it to their Junior season. Oh well I guess.

He's on walking on? Oh God, our walk-on program is AWFUL. This kid must be completely worthless. :sarcasm

 

In such a small class with a logjam of RBs in front of him, I'm glad we were able to find a quality RB willing to walk on and be a Husker! Welcome King!

It started with Mitch Holt at LB who had to quit due to injuries I believe or may have even graduated. His brother Andrew is a redshirt freshman DB and Wil Richards is a sophomore DB(he "roughed"the punter against Michigan).

This is NOT a greyshirt offer. There have been no greyshirt offers accepted if the staff has even put that out there for any recruits.

 

Shoff could be a canidate, if he isn't a late offer.

I see that we have 2 superstaters in Foster (long snapper) and Foltz (punter) that area considering Nebraska as walk-ons. Would love to see that.

Another two are Nabity a LB from Elkhorn; and Reilly, a DB from Lincoln SW.

 

We get a few of these guys and we'll end up with a great walk-on class this year.

I'd be curious of what are "insiders" think of this walk-on class. As one who has followed Husker football for 40 years, recruiting for probably the past 10 ... I still have no inkling of how good it is compared to others. However, you read this thread and it seems to be an impressive list with lots of two star and one three star. Any input from those knowledgeable?

Does anyone know what the staffs policy is on rewarding walk ons with scollys? Would the staff sign as many recruits as possible or reserve a couple of schollys for deserving walkons ie maher and long.

Every year they reward at least one with a scholarship. Most years it has been 2 or greater. Not sure there is a number, they just make it a point to reward a couple each year.

Watched the Class B Nebraska State Championship for football.... Graham Nabity is one hell of a LB, always having his name called for being in the play. Good insticts, has a great nose for the ball. Also seems to be able to diagnose the play very well. Good addition, as I'm sure all of these guys are.

Ryker Fyfe is visiting as an official visitor. Would be a big coup is steal him as a walk-on.

This is so true. I figured Ryker to kind of end up like Nate Enderle. Division I just at a smaller school.

This Jared Blum TE walk-on sounds good. An all-sport athlete. Sounds like he was a pretty good basketball player. Anybody seen him play? Any opinions of his potential at TE?
