Nebraska gained another potential playmaker over the weekend.
Wide receiver Kwinten Ives of Palmyra High School in New Jersey committed to Nebraska while on his official visit. The unranked athlete is one of the standouts Nebraska started recruiting during the Matt Rhule era. He received his offer from Nebraska on November 29. Running backs coach EJ Barthel, formerly running backs coach at UConn, visited him last weekend while on the road in the northeast.

Ives’ only other offers came from Temple, Monmouth and Stony Brook. He classifies himself as an athlete who can move at receiver and out of the backfield. He ran for 1,617 yards on 157 carries this past season and recently clocked his 40 time at 4.5 seconds. He busted a run of 42 or more yards in six games. Ives also caught 15 passes for 240 yards. He scored 28 total touchdowns, including a 79-yard kickoff return.
This is the 13th commitment of Nebraska’s 2023 recruiting class. The Huskers ranked No. 62 in the composite rankings before any of the recruits that came to Nebraska over the weekend on official visits announced their commitments. He would be the only running back, following decommitments, and third receiver of Nebraska’s 2023 class.
