Sutton offensive lineman Garrett Nuss to walk-on with the Huskers

Sutton offensive lineman Garrett Nuss attended Nebraska's game against Illinois on Nov. 10, 2018. The Huskers won 54-35. 

Sutton offensive lineman Garrett Nuss announced Monday night that he will walk on at 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.

Nuss made the announcement via Twitter.
