Nebraska gained its first recruit commitment in over a month on Wednesday night from an in-state standout.
Gretna senior Korver Demma announced his commitment to the Huskers as a preferred walk-on on Twitter. He is the sixth known in-state commitment in the Class of 2023 behind Maverick Noonan (Elkhorn South), Gunnar Gottula (Lincoln Southeast), Benjamin Brahmer (Pierce), Brock Knutson (Scottsbluff) and Sam Sledge (Creighton Prep).

Demma received game day invitations throughout the season and was on the sidelines as Nebraska beat Indiana.
The Gretna senior linebacker has hit his stride lately. He tallied 10 total tackles against Bellevue West and followed that with a performance against Papillion-La Vista South with eight tackles (two for loss), a fumble recovery and an interception he returned for a touchdown.
Demma is unranked, unrated by most recruiting sites. He took his official visit to Brookings and South Dakota State last weekend with other recruiting interest from the University of South Dakota.
“He’s really athletic,” Gretna head coach Michael Kayl said of Demma. “He plays off the ball really well, he’ll go sideline to sideline. As a D-lineman he’s really hard to block.”
Through seven games this season Demma has 33 tackles, 5.0 for loss. Four of those tackles for loss are sacks. He made 54 tackles in 12 games last year (8.0 for loss).
The senior Dragon told Hail Varsity earlier this week that he’d love to play for the Huskers one day and wanted to put his college decision to bed so he could concentrate on what’s left of his senior football season.
Gretna hosts Omaha South this weekend.
