    Guys like Guzman are really interesting to me. Long, athletic kid with good speed and quickness. He's definitely not a corner from watching his film, but a safety is possible, and LB also possible. Let Duval and Ellis add 20 lbs this year and get him to 210 and we'll see at Safety. If he puts on 30-40 then he may be a LB.

    the job the coaches are doing in recruiting the walk-ons is underrated by a lot of people

    Let's add this up. If we take 30 recruits+19 walk-ons and 1 transfer. That is 50 new members of the team.

    Just a weird side note in case anyone is wondering about the discrepancies.. Both the Omaha World Herald and Lincoln Journal Star only list 19 walk-on commits. The OWH excludes Sam Shurtleff and the LJS doesn't count Gabe Heins. No clue why. The OWH not listing Shurtleff is odd because Nebraska announced him as part of the walk-on class on signing day. Anyway, by my count we have 20 known commits (updated list on the first post).

    I'm curious what percentage of walk-ons are still with the program after a year and by the end of their fours years. If you are signing on average 40 guys per year between walk-ons and scholarship guys those are some big numbers.

    I am pretty sure they transfer or leave the team at a higher rate. Not worried about either. They are taking their shot. While they are here they help the team. To their benefit they get top rated training for a year or two. So if they transfer to an FCS or Div II or III school they have a leg up.

    So far none have left from last year's class of 23. That could change after spring ball though. Only four have left from the class before that (Cole Frahm, Cody Liske, Jose Marquez, and Dylan Reynolds).

    Sounds like Dylan Kautz is still deciding. Only an offer from Wayne State for football, with South Dakota and Nebraska as options for track depending on the times this season. Possible that he'll run track and walk-on for football at NU as well, but he doesn't want to do a pure walk-on for football due to family financial reasons
