Nebraska received another commitment for the 2018 class on Sunday from defensive end Tate Wildeman. The 6-6, 245 pound athlete from Legends High School in Parker, Colorado, shared the news on Twitter.
Wildeman is considered a 3-star defensive end with an 86.8 national rating per Hail Varsity’s national composite. He holds offers from Arizona State, Iowa, Colorado State and more.
There is a family connection to Nebraska for Wildeman. His dad played college football at Iowa with defensive coordinator Bob Diaco. That, alongside an “incredible weekend in Lincoln,” were enough to make Wildeman pull the trigger and commit to Nebraska.
