Nebraska TE coach lauds 4-star newcomer Thomas Fidone on early progress: 'He's going to help this football team'
Highly-ranked tight end recruit Thomas Fidone brought plenty of hype with him to Lincoln. As Nebraska’s top-rated recruit in the 2021 class, there was an expectation he’d be able to get on the field quickly in his Huskers career.
It sounds like that will be the case.
Speaking this week with reporters, tight ends coach Sean Beckton was asked about how well Fidone is adjusting to the college game this spring. It sounds like the former 4-star prospect is getting better each day.
“Fidone has really, really improved since Day 1 and he’s only gonna get better from here,” Beckton said. “The sky’s the limit with him. He caught maybe four or five passes today, really had a really good scrimmage. He’s starting to understand the techniques and how to practice on the college level. This is his best day. By far. So, I’m really, really proud. We just gotta keep pressing him to continue on. He’s gonna help this football team this year.”

Per 247Sports, Fidone was the No. 93 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting class. The native of Council Bluffs, Iowa was the top-ranked player out of his state and the No. 2 tight end in the class.
So far, it sounds like he’s living up to the hype in Lincoln.
