Florida Defensive Lineman Hayden Schwartz Leaves Nebraska’s 2022 Recruiting Class

October 18, 2021

The Huskers’ 2022 class just got smaller.

Nebraska’s class was dealt a blow on Monday. That’s when Florida defensive lineman Hayden Schwartz announced he was reopening his recruitment. Schwartz made his decision public on Twitter.

Nebraska gained Schwartz’s (6-4, 245) commitment back in July about a month after he took an official visit to the school. Schwartz also took an official visit to Michigan on June 4. The defender from Jacksonville, Florida, was one of Nebraska’s preferred targets on the defensive line this recruiting cycle. Schwartz picked Nebraska over 27 offers. That included from Michigan, Indiana, Iowa State, Northwestern and Miami.

Schwartz was a force for his team that went 10-3 and made the 4A state final in 2020. He totaled 68 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss and four sacks during his junior season. The Huskers were hoping that Schwartz would be the latest piece from the Florida pipeline. Now the Huskers are down to one Florida commit in the class: wide receiver Victor Jones Jr. The Huskers are now without a defensive lineman in the 2022 recruiting class.

Schwartz was in town for an unofficial visit for the Michigan game. He is the second decommitment from the recruiting class. Illinois offensive lineman Valen Erickson flipped to Missouri back on Sept. 6.
