Lincoln Southwest linebacker Caden McCormack commits to walk on with Huskers

December 6, 2018

Nebraska’s walk-on event Wednesday has produced its first commitment.

Lincoln Southwest’s Caden McCormack announced on Twitter Thursday morning he will walk on at Nebraska.

“I had a good talk with Coach (Scott) Frost last night, and he sold me,” McCormack said. “I walked out of his office, down to the lobby and got butterflies, so I turned back around and went to his office and told him I want to play for him.”

McCormack — a 6-foot-2, 210-pound outside linebacker — unofficially visited Nebraska numerous times this season.

He played on both sides of the ball for the SilverHawks. As a running back he rushed for 455 yards and four touchdowns, and at linebacker he tallied 149 total tackles, four sacks and one interception.

McCormack chose Nebraska over interest from Kansas, Boise State, Kansas State, Wyoming and a handful of FCS and Division II schools.

He’s the second player from Lincoln Southwest to join NU’s 2019 walk-on class, following kicker Dylan Jorgensen.
