Sutton running back Noah Johnson (22) finds room to run during the Mustangs' 44-6 win against Tri County on Sept. 12.

Noah Johnson is the latest in-state addition to the Huskers' walk-on list for 2015.

And from a statistical standpoint, the 6-foot, 195-pound Sutton running back may be one of the most impressive additions to a list of walk-ons that includes eight in-state products.

All Johnson did this previous high school football season was rush for 2,892 yards and lead the Mustangs to a 9-1 overall record and appearance in the Class C-2 state playoffs. 

He scored 40 of his team's 58 total touchdowns and also added 17 two-point conversions for good measure. Johnson was a Journal Star second team Super-State selection and the top rusher in the Bobby Mills' 1000-yard club this season. He also holds the state's single-game record for carries (57).

Of the Huskers nine announced walk-ons for 2015, eight played their high school ball in Nebraska. The Nebraska twitter account officially announced Johnson Saturday morning.
