Nebraska Awards Scholarships To Six Walk-Ons At Thursday’s Practice

The Huskers fill out some scholarship numbers.

We kind of had a feeling that Kenny Wilhite’s tweet earlier today meant some good news for folks later on.

And now we know the players that the Nebraska Cornhuskers coaching staff have awarded scholarships to for the season.

As a reminder, since these kids were walk-ons, scholarships are a one-year entity. They are not four-year offer or remainder-of-eligibility thing, more a year-to-year renewal.

It sounds like Mike Riley rested his QB1 today, as Tanner Lee didn’t toss the pigskin!

If you’re wondering about injury updates, it sounds like the wideout group is now even MORE thin than before.

Not saying Keyan was going to start, but it’s just another body down with less than 10 days to gameday.
