LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Nebraska adds another transfer.

Nebraska landed a commitment from Rutgers, tight end transfer Travis Vokolek, on Tuesday.

The 6'6, 240 lbs Vokolek is from Springfield, Missouri. He was a standout tight end and linebacker at Kickapoo High School.

His father, D.J. Vokolek, is originally from Lincoln and played linebacker at the University of Nebraska-Kearney.
