Specialist Nico Ottomanelli Announces Commitment to Nebraska’s 2024 Class

June 23, 2023

Nebraska’s already gained a preferred walk-on to its 2024 recruiting class.

Nico Ottomanelli, a kicker and punter out of Old Tappan, New Jersey, announced his pledge to the Huskers’ upcoming recruiting class on Thursday. He visited Nebraska in the spring and competed at the specialist camp earlier this month.

Ottomanelli is 6-foot-2, 170 pounds and a converted soccer player in New Jersey. He’s a 4.5-star kicker by Kohl’s and a 4.0-punter. He was 4-of-5 kicking field goals last season with a long of 46 yards and converted 56-of-60 PATs.

Nebraska’s already gained a kicker and punter on scholarship since Matt Rhule’s arrival as head coach. The Huskers added Omaha Westside graduate Tristan Alvano in the 2023 class and Kamdyn Koch, son of Husker legend Sam Koch, committed to punt at Nebraska as part of the 2024 class earlier this month.
