Nebraska football gets commitments from several players

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska football landed several commitments in the last three days, including a four-star edge rusher from Texas.

Princewill Umanmielen — a Manor, Texas, native — announced his commitment Monday morning via Twitter.

Umanmielen had several offers from other Power Five schools, including Arkansas, California and Florida.

Also on Monday, three-star lineman Jason Maciejczak announced that he flipped his commitment to Nebraska.

Maciejczak was originally committed to playing for North Dakota.

Nebraska got a commitment on Saturday from three-star safety Rahmir Stewart.  He is the only safety of the 2023 recruiting class.

Stewart had several offers from other Power Five schools, including Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn and Baylor.

Nebraska also got a handful of players from the transfer portal.

The most notable of those commitments was Jeff Sims, a Georgia Tech quarterback who announced Saturday that he will transfer to Nebraska.

Sims, who was rated as a four-star QB by 247Sports, played at Georgia Tech for three seasons. The Florida native has two years of eligibility left.

Sims played in seven games last season for the Yellow Jackets, picking up 1,115 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Huskers have several quarterbacks still on the roster, including Casey Thompson, who has not yet said what he will do with his last season of eligibility.

Another transfer, defensive back Corey Collier Jr., spent the last two seasons at Florida.

As a Gator, Collier only played in five games, mostly spending time on special teams.

Similar to Sims, 247Sports rated Collier as a four-star recruit coming out of high school.

Collier was one of 100 invitees to the 2021 All-American Bowl and was rated as the third-best safety in the country by Rivals.

Amid all of the commitments, a recruit announced Sunday night that he would be decommitting from Nebraska.

Hayden Moore, a three-star linebacker from Colorado, joins a long list of players who have decommitted amid the program’s coaching changes.

Those players include four-stars Malachi Coleman and Omarion Miller.
