Nebraska gets late commitment from 2021 4-star LB, top prospect from Hawaii
Most of the recruiting for the 2021 cycle has come to a close, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still a little work left to be done with that class. And over the weekend, Nebraska was able to capitalize by adding another 4-star recruit to its incoming class.
Saturday, the Huskers received a pledge from 4-star inside linebacker Wynden Ho’ohuli out of Hawaii. He is rated as one of the top linebackers in the 2021 cycle and is listed as the top overall prospect from his home state, per 247Sports.
Ho’ohuli is ranked as the No. 9 inside linebacker of his class and is listed as a Top 150 overall prospect, coming in at No. 148. He’s the second-highest rated commit to pledge to the Huskers, behind 4-star tight end Thomas Fidone. Ho’ohuli is also the fourth 4-star prospect to commit to the program.
Nebraska’s 2021 class is now up to 20 members and ranks No. 5 in the B1G and No. 20 nationally.
More than a dozen schools showed interest in Ho’ohuli on the recruiting trail. The 4-star linebacker received offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Kansas State, Oregon, Oregeon State, USC, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Washington State at the Power 5 level. Hawaii and Utah State also extended offers.
Ho’ohuli was selected to play in the All-American Bowl and the Polynesian Bowl because of his talent. It’s a huge addition for Scott Frost and the Nebraska staff.
