- Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (Fall, 2011; Spring, 2012)
Sophomore Richard Wynne Jr. will look to add depth in a talented Nebraska receiving corps in 2013. A product of Nebraska high school power Omaha Creighton Prep, Wynne originally joined the program as a walk-on running back in 2011, before making the switch to receiver. Wynne could also bid for playing time on the Huskers' special teams.
2012 (Redhirst Freshman)
Wynne provided depth at receiver but did not see game action.
Wynne redshirted in his first year and worked on the scout team offense.
Before Nebraska (Creighton Prep HS)
Wynne had an outstanding career at Omaha Creighton Prep High School, racking up better than 1,600 rushing yards in 11 games for Coach Tom Jaworski. Wynne led the Junior Jays to a 7-4 record and a Class A quarterfinal appearance. He is believed to be the first back from Creighton Prep to surpass 100 rushing yards in every game of a season. Wynne earned first-team Super-State honors from the Lincoln Journal Star and first-team All-Nebraska accolades from the Omaha World-Herald for his efforts. Wynne had interest from Augustana and Northwest Missouri State.
Richard is the son of Monica and Richard Wynne Sr. He was born on Oct. 18, 1992. Wynne has not declared a major, but has been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll each of his first two semsters. Wynne volunteered his time through the Husker Heroes program.
