Nebraska picked up an in-state recruit today as Kearney Catholic quarterback Heinrich Haarberg committed to the 2021 recruiting class only a few days after being offered by Scott Frost and company.
I’ve lived a lot of places in my life, but the people are what makes it home. For the next 5 years The University of Nebraska is where I’ll be calling home!

According to Hudl, Haarberg is 6’5” 195 lbs. He runs the 100 m dash in 11.05, which sounds pretty darned impressive to me.
247 rates him as a three-star. They rank him as the 15th best dual-threat quarterback nationally and the fourth-best player in Nebraska.
Haarberg threw for 1,869 yards and 23 touchdowns last year as a junior. He completed 109 passes on 186 attempts for a 59% completion percentage. He threw for 23 touchdowns along with four interceptions. He ran for 458 yards on 83 carries for a 5.5 yard per carry average. He scored four touchdowns on the ground.
Haarberg had offers from Boston College, Buffalo and Central Michigan. Not exactly a murderer row of high football performance, but perhaps Frost and Mario Verdusco have found a diamond in the rough.
While I don’t know how his Husker career will go, I am sure that the community of this web site will enjoy butchering his name to bits.
Welcome to Corn Nation, Heinrich Haarberg!
