2023 O-Lineman Gunnar Gottula Commits to Nebraska

June 26, 2021

Nebraska has its second member of the 2023 recruiting class.

Lincoln Southeast offensive lineman Gunnar Gottula committed to Nebraska on Saturday. He shared his announcement on Twitter, alongside two photos and note on his decision.

Gottula, whose dad Ryan Gottula is the head coach at Lincoln Southeast, received his offer from Nebraska earlier in the month following a Friday Night Lights camp.

“After the end of camp, Coach (Greg) Austin had me wait aside with him,” Gottula told Hail Varsity at the time. “Then Scott Frost came over and I talked to him briefly and they offered me. I was just really excited. It was an exciting moment for me. I was pretty happy.”

It didn’t take long for Gottula to make a decision. After an unofficial visit to Nebraska on Friday, it was clearly enough for him to make it official. He joins Pierce tight end Benjamin Brahmer as the second member of the Huskers’ 2023 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-6, 270-pound offensive lineman most recently picked up an offer from Iowa. He also holds offers from Kansas State and Iowa State.

Gottula is one of several in-state players to hold a Nebraska offer prior to their junior season. That includes teammate Teitum Tuioti, Elkhorn South’s Maverick Noonan and Brahmer.
