Kansas has been more of a focus lately of the Huskers’ recruiting efforts. The team didn’t sign any players from the state in the 2021 recruiting class. In the 2020 class, Nebraska nabbed both Turner Corcoran and Alex Conn. For the 2022 cycle. the team has offered five Kansas natives and three have offers for the 2023 cycle.
One of the newest 2023 offers is to tight end Jaden Hamm.

The 6-foot-6, 215-pound tight end seems to fit the mold of the type of tight end the Huskers are after now under Coach Scott Frost. Hamm’s reaction to getting the offer was pretty positive.
“I was excited and didn’t expect it at all,” Hamm said. “I have family in Nebraska and friends that are Husker fans, so this is an awesome and really a blessing to have this opportunity.”
Since Hamm is surrounded by Huskers fans, I was eager to see what their reaction was when the official offer came from Nebraska on Friday.
“They were all super happy and extremely excited,” Hamm said. “They had a feeling it was coming with the other offers I had picked up.”
For a prospect heading into his junior year of high school he is picking up some nice offers. He’s up to eight offers now. Colorado offered right after Nebraska joining Arkansas, Iowa State, Kansas State, Penn State and others.
Hamm mentioned that while he hasn’t had much contact with Nebraska so far, he is eager to get to know the staff more. He knows the Huskers are excited to get him on campus as soon as the NCAA lifts the dead period.
As a multi-sport athlete Hamm has a lot of potential on the gridiron that is untapped. He also plays basketball and baseball for Eudora High School. He’s not too concerned about distance right now for his future school. The recruit on the rise is looking more into his relationships with different coaching staffs and what type of program they are building.
