As the Nebraska high school football season moves into the postseason, the University of Nebraska's walk-on class continues to grow. 

The Huskers added a verbal commitment from Creighton Prep defensive back AJ Collins on Saturday afternoon. He will join NU as a walk-on. 

Collins is teammates with Nebraska tight end verbal commitment AJ Rollins. 

"I would like to thank every coach that has taken the time to evaluate and recruit me," Collins wrote on Twitter in announcing his decision. "I would also like to extend a thank you to the Creighton Prep football staff and the Warren Academy staff for their mentorship. Lastly, I want to thank my parents, friends, and family for believing in me to accomplish this goal." 

Collins is the third known member of NU's 2021 walk-on class, joining Ashland-Greenwood running back Matthew Schuster and Ord kicker Kelen Meyer.
