Another day, another addition to Nebraska’s walk-on class for 2020.
The latest is Eli Simonson, a lineman at Archbishop Bergan in Fremont. Simonson first picked up a walk-on offer from the Huskers after attending Oct. 5’s last-second win against Northwestern and within a week picked Nebraska. He announced his decision on Twitter on Sunday evening.
Extremely honored to say that I am commiting to Nebraska and joining it’s walk-on tradition, thanks to my family and friends and to all the coaches, trainers, and teammates that have gotten me to this point @coachwilhite @HuskerFBNation #Homegrown #GBR pic.twitter.com/Y4UNPW72RH— Eli (@eli_simonson) October 13, 2019

Simonson is listed at 6-foot-7 and 280 pounds on his Hudl profile and plays multiple positions for the Class D Knights. He is also a talented wrestler in the heavyweight division.
Simonson is the seventh known verbal pledge to the Huskers’ 2020 walk-on class and continues a recent string of commitments. Since the final day of September, five players have joined the class including a fellow Fremont native in Fremont High lineman Keegan Manning, who committed on Thursday evening.
