Nebraska football started trending for another 2025 target last week, Tanner Terch, which came on the heels of two wide receiver commitments.

Now, Nebraska football has started trending another 2025 target. This time, it’s three-star tight end Bear Tenney out of American Fort, Utah. Tenney is 6-foot-5, 250 pounds. He was also recently projected to Michigan and Utah, however, Bryan Munson and Sean Callahan of Husker Online put in expert projections on Wednesday and so did Steve Wiltfong and Chad Simmons from

That makes Nebraska football the favorite for Tenney, who is ranked No. 433 overall in the 2025 class according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. Tenney is ranked as the No. 24 tight end and the fourth-best player in the state of Utah. He’s taken one visit to Lincoln, which was on April 11th.

The tight end caught 25 passes last season as a junior for 278 yards and two touchdowns. Yet, he’s a dude who blocks. He’s a classic, in-line tight end. These guys are becoming more popular and while Carter Nelson is a guy who can split wide, Tenney is a dude built for inside run situations. The fact that Michigan and Utah are also top contenders, shows the kind of player that he is.

This is one to watch moving forward.

Nebraska basketball is in the mix for another transfer target

The Huskers have had a few targets come off the board in recent days. The most notable have been William Kyle and Frankie Fidler. Fidler committed to Michigan State, while Kyle went to UCLA.

Nebraska still has three scholarships to fill. We still haven’t heard one way or another on Rienk Mast, so the Huskers desperately need to add another big or two.

Fred Hoibeg has been in contact with a 6-foot-8 forward from Northern Illinois, Xavier Amos, who averaged 13.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.3 blocks last season. He also shot 38 percent from 3-point range. I like that he averaged 1.3 blocks — Nebraska needs more rim protection, but the Big Ten isn’t the MAC.

However, I wouldn’t call Amos a true big guy. He can’t play the five for instance. He’s more of a combo forward/wing but he’s a great spot-up shooter. Amos is athletic and excels at getting to the rim, plus he is an effective shot blocker.

Amos would have two years of eligibility and would give Nebraska another versatile piece who can play the four. Yet, the Huskers still need another traditional big, especially if Rienk Mast’s status is up in the air.
