Penn State vs. Nebraska, 11.14

Nebraska's Ben Stille (95) and Ty Robinson walk off the field after the Huskers' 30-23 win over Penn State on Nov. 14, 2020, at Memorial Stadium. 

Nebraska on Friday landed a walk-on from a familiar family. 

Truitt Robinson, the younger brother of Cornhusker defensive lineman Ty Robinson, announced he plans to join the program this summer as a walk-on wide receiver. 

The younger Robinson isn't quite the size of his 6-foot-6, 315-pound brother, but goes about 6-0 and 170, according to his Hudl highlights. 

Robinson is the second late walk-on addition for the Huskers in recent weeks. NU also landed a pledge from 2021 quarterback Spencer Arceneaux (Mobile, Alabama) on April 17. 

Nebraska has added more than 20 walk-ons again in the 2021 class. Between the December and February signing periods, the Huskers also landed walk-on commitments from legacy players Grant Lohr and Michael Booker III. The class now has 23 known players total.
