Ord kicker Kelen Meyer will walk on for the Huskers

Ord kicker Kelen Meyer will walk on for the Huskers

Mike Sautter and Jake Anderson preview the upcoming decision for Norris tight end James Carnie, including which schools are still in the mix, where he fits best and more. Plus a look at what Bellevue West's Frankie Fidler brings to UNO men's basketball and the best games from week seven of Nebraska high school football. ​

Nebraska added its second walk-on commitment in the 2021 class Monday night when Ord kicker Kelen Meyer announced his commitment.

"It has always been a dream of mine to go (to Nebraska)," he said. "I grew up watching them, and I just think it is the right fit for me and a dream come true."

In seven games, Meyer is perfect on PATs (44 of 44) and 5 of 6 on field goal attempts. His 58-yard kick earlier this season tied a Class C-2 record and the second-longest in state history, after Chris McClanathan's 59-yarder for Millard South in 1999. He averages 58 yards per kickoff and 40.9 yards per punt.

More than just a kicker and punter, Meyer starts at wide receiver and defensive back for the Chanticleers.

He chose Nebraska over an offer from NAIA Doane and interest from Wyoming. The NU walk-on offer came a little over a week ago, and it didn't take long for him to make his decision.

"I always told myself that if I get the chance to go to Nebraska, I would take it," he said. "I always wanted to go there, and it made my decision pretty easy when they offered."
