The biggest star of the 2014 Nebraska state high school football championships will walk on at Nebraska.
Wyatt Mazour, who accounted for six touchdowns and amassed 378 total yards during Boone Central/Newman Grove's victory in the Class C-1 state title game has announced his decision Friday.
A 5-foot-9, 186-pounder who played quarterback for BC/NG, Mazour was the All-Nebraska quarterback according to The World-Herald.
Our All-Nebraska analysis described Mazour as "electric and explosive," noting that he led the Cardinals by rushing for 1,625 yards, throwing for 1,869 and accounting for 51 total touchdowns.
"I really think he'll do well," BC/NG coach Arnie Johnson said Friday night. "He's good. He has the all the skills you need to be successful at that level."
Johnson said Mazour was heavily pursued by Nebraska-Kearney before Nebraska made the walk-on offer. Mazour was NU's first walk-on offer.
"It's kind of what I thought would happen," Johnson said of Mazour choosing to walk on at Nebraska. "He said 'when I was a little kid growing up, I dreamed of playing for Nebraska.'"
Mazour announced his plans via Twitter on Friday afternoon:
