Sutton offensive lineman Garrett Nuss announced Monday night that he will walk-on with Nebraska. Nuss is the 25th known walk-on in Nebraska's 2019 class and the 21st in-state walk-on.

"It's Nebraska. Every kid from Nebraska wants to go there," Nuss said. "I like all of the coaches that I have talked to, and you can't get a better atmosphere than Lincoln."

Nuss, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound offensive lineman, played both offensive tackle and center for Sutton.

He was on the sidelines for three of Nebraska's home wins last season — Oct. 20 against Minnesota, Oct. 27 against Bethune-Cookman and Nov. 10 against Illinois.

He also attended the Huskers' "Homegrown" walk-on event in December.

"The facilities are grade A and the football atmosphere at Nebraska is crazy," Nuss said. "It is completely different being on the sidelines for a game than just a fan in the stands."

Nuss chose to walk-on at Nebraska over scholarship offers from Division III Nebraska Wesleyan and NAIA schools Midland, Concordia, Hastings and Doane.
