Geneva (Neb.) Fillmore Central lineman recruit Riley Moses has accepted an offer to walk-on at Nebraska as part of the 2019 class. The two-way lineman just hung up with Nebraska a few minutes ago.

"I just got off of the phone with coach Kenny Wilhite and told him that I was accepting their walk-on offer," Moses said.

The two-way recruit first heard from Nebraska this morning. He didn't discuss with the Huskers which side of the football they see him on. He said that it didn't really matter because his love for the game superseded position.

"Coach Wilhite was the coach who offered me the walk-on spot at Nebraska," Moses said. "I am not sure if they want me to play offense or defense. I just love the game so much and I am grateful for the opportunity."

Moses has been to Lincoln this season for all of the home games so far. He will be back in Lincoln again this weekend. He says that he has always dreamed of being part of this team.

"I have been to three games this year and I will be there again this weekend," Moses said. "I have loved Nebraska since I was young. I always wanted to be part of it."

Moses had another walk-on opportunity that he turned down to follow his dream to go to Nebraska. He was also receiving considerable interest from a number of other schools.

"South Dakota State offered me a walk-on spot along with Nebraska. I had been receiving recruiting attention from Nebraska-Kearney, Southwest Minnesota State, Wayne State and Concordia."
