2023 Defensive Lineman Cameron Lenhardt Commits to Nebraska

August 25, 2022

Say hello to Cameron Lenhardt. The 4-star defensive lineman is the latest to commit to Nebraska’s 2023 recruiting class. He is commitment No. 14 for the class.

The 6-foot-3 and 240-pound prospect’s final list of programs he was interested in included Michigan State, Penn State and Nebraska. He had offers from all over the country, though, drawing plenty of Power Five interest.

Lenhardt — who is originally from New York — transferred to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, in 2021. He worked primarily at the edge rusher spot for IMG, but also saw some snaps at linebacker. Per 247Sports, Lenhardt is the No. 33 edge recruit in the country. He is also considered a top-300 prospect nationally.

Lenhardt visited Nebraska in late June, which provided him an opportunity to meet with the Husker coaching staff and get a feel for the program.

“It was great sitting down with coach [Mike] Dawson. We watched film and we talked a whole bunch of football,” Lenhardt told Hail Varsity following the visit. “They said my position would be playing stand up edge. Basically like Caleb Tannor. We had a lot of great overall talks about football.”

What stood out specifically to Lenhardt about Nebraska? His post-visit answers likely provide some insight into why Nebraska earned his commitment.

“I will say something that stood out the most was just the coaching staff,” Lenhardt said. “They’re a great group of guys and great men. It’s somewhere I can picture myself like being. Plus, coach [Scott] Frost is a cool dude.”
