Huskers add commitment from versatile legacy walk-on
Nebraska has added another legacy walk-on to the 2021 class.
Athlete Grant Lohr from Jenks, Oklahoma announced his decision to commit to the Huskers. Lohr made the announcement on Tuesday night, the eve of National Signing Day. He’s the second legacy to commit to the Nebraska walk-on class this week.
Lohr is the son of former Nebraska defensive lineman Jason Lohr, who was in Lincoln from 1998-2003. He played in 45 career games for the Huskers and was credited with making 92 tackles.
After receiving an opportunity to play at The University of Nebraska, I am extremely excited and blessed to say, that I am committing. #Go HUSKERS #myredburnsbrighter #Thegoodlife
