Andre Hunt

6-0, 190 • Freshman • wide receiver

Andre Hunt is a name that kept popping up this spring. He appeared in two games as a true freshman but didn’t catch a pass before redshirting for the season. Hunt traveled with the team, so he has that experience, too. The Nebraska coaching staff expects a lot from Hunt, a three-star recruit from California. Should he prove he can block and become a consistent option for Adrian Martinez, Hunt could easily become that third starting wide receiver Nebraska’s been looking for the past 12 months.
