One of the top 50 defensive tackles and the best player out of South Dakota has committed to Nebraska.
Saturday morning, three-star defensive lineman Nash Hutmacher announced his commitment to Nebraska, becoming the sixth player in the 2020 class to join the Huskers. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound tackle made his decision public via Twitter.
“I would like to say I can not thank my parents enough for all they have done for me over the years none of this would be possible without them. Also I would like to thank my family, coaches, and teammates that have pushed me to become the athlete and person I am today,” Hutmacher wrote. “With that I am committing to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.”

Hutmacher received offers from five programs, including Nebraska. He chose the Huskers over Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa State and Oregon.
According to 247Sports, Hutmacher is the No. 46 defensive tackle in the 2020 class and is the No. 1 overall player out of the state of South Dakota. Nationally, Hutmacher comes in at No. 487 among all prospects in the cycle.
Because of his large frame, Hutmacher has earned the nickname “Polar Bear.”
Hutmacher is the first defensive lineman to commit to the Huskers, and just the sixth player in the class. But it’s a huge addition for Scott Frost and his staff, stealing a quality out-of-state product.
With Hutmacher’s pledge, Nebraska now has the 12th ranked recruiting class in the B1G. It sits 68th nationally.
