Four-Star Texas High School Edge Rusher Princewill Umanmielen Commits to Nebraska

December 19, 2022

Nebraska added another touted recruit to its defensive front on Monday.

Princewill Umanmielen, composite 4-star edge out of Manor, Texas, announced his commitment to Nebraska following is official visit weekend. The 6-foot-4, 228-pound high school senior is ranked in the ESPN Top 300 national recruits for this recruiting class.

Nebraska started its pursuit of Umanmielen on November 28, the day Matt Rhule was introduced as head coach. Rhule offered him a scholarship right away, a day before offers rolled in from Jackson State and Ole Miss. Umanmielen received over 20 offers, including at least one offer from every Power 5 conference.

Umanmielen finished with 65 tackles, 22 for loss and 8.0 sacks in his senior season.

Nebraska’s new edge rusher, the younger brother of Florida defensive end Princely Umanmielen, is also a prominent jumper for the Manor High track team.

Umanmielen is the sixth announced commitment of the weekend. He follows Omaha Westside standouts Tristan Alvano and Jaylen Lloyd, Philadelphia safety Rahmir Stewart, former Florida safety Corey Collier Jr. and former Georgia Tech quarterback Jeff Sims. He’s the tenth overall commitment since Rhule arrived in Lincoln.
