Family affair: Younger brother of Huskers DL commits to Nebraska as walk-on
The younger brother of a Nebraska defensive lineman has decided to join the team as a walk-on.
Friday, wide receiver Truitt Robinson announced that he will be committing to the Huskers as a walk-on player next fall. He is the brother of current Nebraska defensive lineman Ty Robinson. Truitt made his announcement official with a post on Twitter.
“Thank you to my teammates and coaches throughout the years pushing me to become better as a player and person. Big thank you to Elev8 sports academy, this would not be possible without them,” Truitt wrote. “With that being sai, I will be spending the next few years on PWO at the University of Nebraska.”
