Luke Mullin and Amie Just analyze Nebraska men’s basketball victory over Wisconsin and give their thoughts on what it means for Fred Hoiberg’s future at Nebraska.
Nebraska baseball later this week added four more new commitments to future classes before starting its season on Friday night.
The Huskers got commitments from a pair of 2024 prospects in third baseman/pitcher Dane Most (Broomfield, Colorado) and infielder/right Adam Kayko (Johnston, Iowa). Both are considered powerful and ranked among the top 100 third basemen in the nation in their class by Perfect Game. Kayko is a lefty bat.
NU also brought on board two 2025 pitchers in lefty Brett Hoelscher (Papillion-La Vista) and righty Ty Miller (Olathe West at Kansas). Hoelscher has top-end speed for his age with a mid-80s fastball, while the 6-foot-5, 185-pound Miller is coming off a dominant fall season — no earned runs allowed in 23 innings — and also plays first base.
Nebraska has added a dozen new commitments across four classes since the calendar moved to 2023, with many earning deals and joining the team’s prospect camp last month.
