Huskers Work In The Omaha Metro Area Finally Paying Off

More great news in the Omaha area!

The Huskers added the commitment of Creighton Prep tight end A.J. Rollins Friday evening. Rollins is 6'6 and 230 pounds & also plays basketball for the Junior Jays. On the gridiron, he plays tight end, splits out wide & even plays a little defensive end.

AJ's film displays everything you'd want to see from a tight end. He plays in-line a lot. He is a great route runner. He's got dependable hands. He can block. He can box out defenders, go up and make touchdown grabs in the red zone. I walked away very impressed with his skill set.

AJ had Division 1 offers from Nebraska, Iowa State, Missouri, Liberty & UCF. He visited Iowa State a couple times & it sounds like there may have been interest there as his cousin is Cyclones RB Breece Hall, a Wichita, Kansas native that Nebraska recruited for the 2019 class. However, AJ was unable to take any official visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so he committed to the team that offered him first & showed him the most love.

With the commitment of Rollins, the Huskers 2021 recruiting class is currently ranked 18th in the country by Rivals & 24th in the USA, 6th in the Big Ten and #1 in the Big Ten West according to 247. A great bump for being ranked #39 a little over a week ago.

Welcome to Nebraska, AJ!!!! GBR!
