Trent Uhlir’s dream is coming true. The Nebraska legacy is getting the opportunity to play for the Cornhuskers.

Uhlir announced his pledge to play for Matt Rhule’s program on Monday. Uhlir is a Class of 2024 prospect out of Battle Creek. He will be a preferred walk-on for the Huskers.

Todd Uhlir, Trent’s father, was a member of Nebraska’s 1994 and ’95 national championship squads. His football career ended early after he tore his shoulder in his sophomore season.

Trent shared the big news Monday on social media.

“Blessed to be able to announce my commitment to the University of Nebraska!” Trent wrote in a note posted on X. “I’ve always dreamed of following my family’s footsteps and now that I am it’s a dream come true. I’d like to thank Coach Carlson and all the coaches I’ve had that have mentored me over the years. Without them none of this would be possible. I’d like to thank Coach Rhule and his staff for believing in my abilities and giving me an opportunity of a lifetime. GBR!”

According to KCAU, Uhlir recorded 917 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns, both team-highs, while also leading the defense in tackles with 7.6 per game. Uhlir is also a discus and shot put standout.
