Commit dateOct. 13, 2019

Fremont Bergan senior Eli Simonson joined the growing list of in-state Husker walk-ons, announcing his commitment via Twitter Sunday.

"I've always been set on Nebraska," the 6-foot-6, 260-pound offensive lineman said. "I've been going to their camps since my sophomore year. They are close to home and have the best fan base in the nation."

Simonson is the second offensive lineman from Fremont to accept a NU walk-on offer in less than a week. Keegan Menning, a 6-4, 308-pound interior lineman from Fremont High, committed last week.

He said the Huskers projects him as an offensive tackle when he arrives on campus in 2020, and Simonson is excited to be a part of what NU coach Scott Frost and his staff are building.

"I think Frost is building a dynasty," he said. "I wanted to be a part of it as soon as possible, and I think I can once I get the right training."
