ILB | Nick Henrich
Hometown: Omaha, Neb.
Date Committed: July 21
Offers of note: Wisconsin, Iowa, Notre Dame, Iowa State, others.
Lead recruiter: Barrett Ruud.
Henrich represents one of the biggest recruiting wins to date for Scott Frost and company. The highly regarded in-state linebacker could have gone just about anywhere he wanted, but Frost and Barrett Ruud convinced him to stay and play for the Huskers. Henrich missed four-plus games with a knee injury, but still won Gatorade Player of the Year in Nebraska. In 21 total games as a junior and senior, Henrich compiled 215 tackles (10.2 per game), 51 for loss and 15 sacks. He’s considered by most to be the best college prospect in the state. Henrich is an early enrollee.
