nebraska's new walk-on lineman

Here's a cool story on 18-year-old Seung Hoon Choi, the 6-foot-2, 320-pound high school kid from South Korea who was asked by Nebraska's coaching staff to join the team as a walk-on: Lincoln Christian's Choi to walk on at NU. Considering the storied history of Nebraska's football program, this is a pretty big deal. And to the best of anyone's knowledge, Seung Hoon will be the first Korean to be part of the Husker team.

Choi apparently got the attention of Nebraska's recruiters when someone spotted him at school during his junior year. I suppose a Korean kid that big is kind of hard to miss. And you don't pass on that kind of potential without taking a good, hard look. Now they're trying to groom him into something special for the Huskers as an offensive lineman. Go, kid.
