After a strong season at Burwell high school (NE), 2016 wide receiver Ty Chaffin will head to Lincoln as a preferred walk-on. The Nebraska prep announced via his Twitter page on Saturday.
According to Maxpreps, Chaffin was third in Class D-1 in receiving yards in 2015, recording 870 yards in 12 contests.
Chaffin is 6-foot-5 and 200-pounds, which means the tight end spot is likely in his future, assuming he has no issue adding weight.
Big Red Report will catch up with the walk-on after National Signing Day.
