Ty Hahn

Ty Hahn attended Nebraska's game against Northern Illinois and is hoping to receive a scholarship offer from the Huskers.

Ty Hahn isn't in a rush to make a decision on where he'll play college football.

"I'd like to have it done and sign in December," Hahn said. "After I get the decision done I can focus on preparing and get ready to play basketball and the track season."

The 6-foot-2, 187-pound athlete from Johnson-Brock holds an FBS offer from Wyoming and six FCS offers from South Dakota State, South Dakota, North Dakota State, Northern Iowa, Western Illinois and North Dakota.

He's also waiting patiently for an offer from Nebraska.

Hahn last heard from a member of the NU coaching staff prior to start of his senior season. It was a conversation with offensive coordinator/receivers coach Troy Walters wishing him luck. The majority of the contact with Nebraska has been from NU's recruiting department. Kenny Wilhite (director of high school relations) invites him to games, but director of player personnel Sean Dillon has communicated with Hahn the most.

"He's the person that has been texting me the most from Nebraska," Hahn said. "We usually just text about games and school and other random things."

Hahn took a game-day visit to Nebraska for the Northern Illinois game, and he was invited to attend Saturday's game against Ohio State.

In June he participated in Nebraska’s 7-on-7 camp and had a good conversation with NU coach Scott Frost and associate athletic director for football Matt Davison.

“Most of the conversation was regular talk about my high school season,” Hahn said in June. “Frost said, ‘I want you to know that we want you here. We aren’t sure what quite yet.’”

Fast forward four months, and Nebraska continues to softly recruit him. No scholarship offer or preferred walk-on offer has been presented to Hahn yet.

"I want to see what Nebraska does because it is the hometown team," Hahn said. "I kind of want to go there but I don't want to walk on because I have other good opportunities."

It’s been nearly 20 years since Nebraska offered a scholarship to an in-state Eight-Man player. The most recent was Steve Kriewald from North Loup-Scotia in the 2000 class. Hahn could also be the first such player to receive a power-conference offer since 2013, when Nathan Bazata from Howells-Dodge signed with Iowa.

Illinois coaches contacted Hahn before the season started and said they'd watch his film throughout the season. Northwestern, Iowa, Iowa State, Baylor and Kansas State have also shown interest in Hahn.

He visited Wyoming for the season opener and wants to take an official visit later this fall.
