Mitch McCann will join the Huskers as a walk-on after helping the Burke Bulldogs become one of the toughest defenses in the state of Nebraska, holding offenses to 18 points and under 130 yards per game. A three-year starter at middle linebacker for Burke, McCann totaled 128 tackles during his senior season to go along with two sacks and two fumble recoveries. McCann helped Burke reach the Class A state championship in 2011, where he tallied a game-high 9.5 tackles. A first-team Super State linebacker by the Lincoln Journal Star and honorable mention All-Nebraska pick by the Omaha World-Herald, McCann chose to walk-on at NU over a scholarship offer from South Dakota State. McCann is the son of Pete and Stephanie McCann, and he was born on Dec. 23, 1993.
