Nebraska Football: Ernest Hausmann important for in-state recruiting

Ernest Hausmann is officially in the fold. After being committed to the Nebraska football program for nine months, he officially put his pen to paper on Tuesday.

In doing so, he gives Nebraska one of their highest-rated commitments of the 2022 glass. This commitment is also important to me because he is from the state of Nebraska. Much ado has been made over the tenure of Scott Frost in regards to in-state recruiting. Now, they landed one of the biggest fish in the state.

For reference, Hausmann was recruited by Barrett Ruud and Erik Chinander. He was a three-star recruit and the fifth overall player in the 2022 class from the state of Nebraska per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

He will be able to bring a little bit of everything to Nebraska. When I watch his highlights, I see a player that is able to show flashes and versatility defensively. He is very good at being able to read a play and coming down to make it. He could come off the edge, as well as play in coverage. His coverage skills are impressive as well. Instinctually sound is a phrase I would use to describe him.

With the way Hausmann plays, I could definitely see him being a hybrid type of player in the Nebraska football defense. These are the types of players that are becoming more popular by the day in college football. Overall, he is a good athlete so that definitely works out in his favor.

To me, the fact that he is a local kid is extremely important. If he does well here, that could potentially open up the eyes of future prospects in the state of Nebraska. The Huskers have done well recently and keeping kids home, but I would love to see that proverbial fence get stronger in-state.

I’m happy he officially decided to come here, and I can’t wait to see what he can do on the defensive side the ball. He is definitely a playmaker, and I trust Erik Chinander to be able to put him in successful situations.
