Nebraska added Southern Miss designated hitter transfer Charlie Fischer Wednesday afternoon.

Fischer had quite the season in 2021 and was held back from his true potential with a hand injury in 2022. Fischer started 53 games as DH, smacking 7 home runs and totaling 37 RBI, per Omaha-World Herald.

The Cornhuskers are in full rebuild mode after a 23-30 season in 2022. Fischer, despite struggling this season with a .167 average following his hand injury suffered in April, could help Nebraska back to the postseason. The Cornhuskers made the tournament in 2019 and 2021.

The 6-foot-2 power hitter will retain 1 season of eligibility.
