The Nebraska football team actually got two commits on Sunday but fans have likely heard less about Zach Weinmaster

NFL

Zach Weinmaster announced he was committed to the Nebraska football team last week. Because that announcement was a bit under the radar its possible some Husker fans missed it. There are some things to be known about Weinmaster.

1

He's a 'preferred' walk-on

Weinmaster is a kind "extra" pickup for the Huskers as he won't count against their scholarship limit. This is especially surprising because he's not an in-state kid, rather he hails from Colorado.

2

This wasn't an immmediate turnaround

The Huskers offered Weinmaster on October 20. It took him about a month to decide if he wanted to walk on at Nebraska. When you consider that in-state kids tend to say yes right away, he definitely had to put some thought into it.

3

He could be a poor man's Spielman

While Weinmaster played running back in high school, it's likely he'll be more of an R receiver at Nebraska. That's where Spielman plays now.
