TE | Chris Hickman
Hometown: Omaha, Neb.
Date Committed: Sept. 15
Offers of note: LSU, Texas, Oregon.
Lead recruiter: Barrett Ruud.
Hickman gave the Huskers a clean sweep of five in-state players with offers when he committed in September. A two-way standout at Burke, Hickman will begin his career as a tight end at NU. At 6-foot-5, Hickman must put on significant weight to play in the Big Ten, but he projects as a down-the-field weapon in Frost’s offense. He had 421 receiving yards and four touchdowns plus 39 tackles (10.5 for loss) and 3.5 sacks as a senior for the state-champion Bulldogs. Hickman is an early enrollee.
