LINCOLN – The Huskers have two interesting prospects this week out of Georgia and Arizona.
Shawn Hardy is a three-star prospect out of Kingsland, Georgia, and the No. 106-rated wide receiver in the 247Sports composite rankings. Hardy held offers from Georgia Tech, Kentucky, LSU and Ohio State, among others. He becomes the eighth member of Nebraska’s 2021 class, and the first receiver for 2021 quarterback commit Heinrich Haarberg.
Nebraska has nine receivers on scholarship, but a majority are underclassmen. Hardy will join a young receiver group with Wan’Dale Robinson, Jamie Nance, Alante Brown and Zavier Betts, among others.
Jared Bubaks, a Lincoln Christian graduate, in transferring from Arizona State, to walk-on at Nebraska. The Tight end will compete with five tight ends on scholarship: senior Jack Stoll, juniors Austin Allen, Kurt Rafdal and Travis Vokolek and sophomore Chris Hickman. Stoll and Vokolek appear to be frontrunners for the starting position.
