Decision to Join Nebraska a ‘No Brainer’ for 2023 Pierce Tight End Benjamin Brahmer

April 02, 2021

The 2023 recruiting class is off and running for the Huskers.

Pierce High School tight end Benjamin Brahmer announced on Friday that he would be committing to the Huskers. The long and lean pass catcher (6-5, 185) made his announcement on Twitter.

“It was pretty much a no brainer,” Brahmer told Hail Varsity. “My parents and my family all told me that it was a good decision, the best decision I could have chosen so I thank them and my family and my coaches and all my friends for supporting me. Then Coach [Steve] Warren down in Omaha at Warren Academy for helping me get through all this.”

Brahmer has worked at the Warren Academy the last couple years, which has allowed him to compete against and learn from top area players. The Pierce native thinks that his route running and ability to get open have improved over the last couple years. Thomas Fidone, James Carnie and others have also made him a better player.

Throughout the recruiting process, Brahmer was hearing a lot from inside linebackers coach Barrett Ruud and head coach Scott Frost. They communicated with him weekly to show how much they wanted him to be a Husker. Brahmer liked that and what he’s seen from tight ends coach Sean Beckton.

“The things I’ve heard about Beckton from other players has definitely been good,” Brahmer said. “He’s a great coach and a great guy. He cares about you as a person not only as a player.”

The Huskers’ newest commit wanted to show leadership starting for the 2023 recruiting class. He’s eager to get to campus for an unofficial visit or compete in camps if allowed this summer. He did take a recent trip to campus that he enjoyed.

“The thing that stood out to me the most on my visit was definitely the atmosphere and everything is all in one place down there,” Brahmer said. I can be in one place the whole time.

“There’s no place like Nebraska so that’s definitely helped me out too.”
