Waite on Nebraska
“From the very first call that I had with Coach Walker, I knew that this school was for me. The way that he had spoken about the culture of both the team and the university made me feel like there was no other option. The programs that they offer from both an academic and athletic standpoint are unmatched by any other school in the country. The support from the fans and the state of Nebraska makes the university feel like a second home to me. I am so beyond grateful for this opportunity and can’t wait to start my new journey for the next four years!”
