Honors & Awards
- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall 2012)
Sophomore Garret Johns has added depth on both offense and defense during his first two seasons in the program. The walk-on from Aurora high school began his NU career on the offensive line before switching to defense in 2013. This fall, the 6-0, 280-pound Johns will look to add depth on a young, but talented Husker defensive front.
2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Johns moved to defense in the spring and added depth on the line, but did not play in a game.
Johns redshirted his first season at Nebraska and worked on the scout team offensive line.
Before Nebraska (Aurora HS)
A multi-sport athlete at Aurora High School, Johns was named to the All-Nebraska second team by the Omaha World-Herald and the Super State second team by the Lincoln Journal Star. As a senior, he helped lead the Huskies to the Class B state playoffs with an 8-3 record from his offensive line position. Johns was selected to participate in the Nebraska Shrine Bowl.
Johns was also a standout on the wrestling mat where he won Class B heavyweight state championships as a junior and senior, posting a combined 82-0 record. Johns chose to walk on at Nebraska over offers from South Dakota State, Northwest Missouri State and Fort Hays State.
Garret was born on Nov. 10, 1993, and is the son of Joe and Rosemary Johns. He is majoring in agronomy. Johns was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall of 2012.
