USA News

An Omaha high school kicker received an offer from Nebraska to walk on in 2023. Millard South kicker/punter Simon McClannan received the offer from the Cornhusker’s coaching staff on Friday afternoon according to his social media. McClannan had previously visited Lincoln on June 4th when he kicked for special teams coach Bill Busch.

Busch is in his second year at Nebraska and is his first season as the special team’s coordinator. This is his third stint coaching at Nebraska, as he was a defensive assistant from 1990 to 1993 and was a secondary and special teams coordinator and secondary coach from 2004-2007. He had previously coached at LSU from 2018-2020, including the 2019 15-0 national championship team.

Currently, the Cornhuskers have no commits in the 2023 recruiting class dedicated to special teams, but most special team scholarships are not offered until after the recruit’s senior season.
