From the Nebraska release, here's your official 2010 list of walk-ons. We at CN wish them the best of luck.

|Keegan Hughes||WR||6-1||175||Roswell Ga.||Roswell HS|
|Tyson McGill||LB/FB||6-1||225||Norfolk Neb.||Norfolk HS|

Three walk-ons join the program from out of state:
- Mark Pelini - from Youngstown, OH. 6-1, 290, comes in as an offensive lineman. High school is Cardinal Mooney, the same school that produced Husker recruit Braylon Heard. Pelini is... obviously related to the Pelini coaches, being the nephew of Bo and Carl Pelini.
- Keegan Hughes - from Roswell, GA. 6-1, 175, comes in as a wide receiver. Turned down a scholarship offer from the Air Force to walk on at Nebraska.
- Jason Dann - from Richardson, TX (Lake Highlands HS). 6-0, 175, comes in as a placekicker. Not uncommon to see kickers come in as walk-ons. Interesting thing about Dann - 40% of his kickoffs were into the end zone for touchbacks. That should improve as college-level strength training takes over.
As for the Nebraska walk-ons, I'm sure some of you have seen them play. The ones that interest me most are:
- Dillon Schrodt, 6-2, 175, wide receiver from North Star High School in Lincoln.
- Joey Felici, 5-9, 165, defensive back, son of Tony Felici from Millard South in Omaha
- Austin Williams, 6-2, 190, defensive back, from Burke High School in Omaha.
Please feel free to give us some comments about these guys.
