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."
