Nebraska Football picked up a commitment from 2024 three-star tight end Ian Flynt on Monday night. Flynt made the announcement on his Twitter.

He is the 24th overall tight end in the 2024 class, and the 81st overall player in his class from the state of Texas per the 24Sports Composite Rankings. He had several offers on the table from the likes of Nebraska, Houston, and Kansas among others. Flynt was recruited to Nebraska by tight ends coach Bob Wager.

Flynt caught 10 passes for 129 yards and two touchdowns for Taylor High School last season. He measures in at 6-foot-5, 248 pounds.

A Nebraska connection for Flynt

There is also a family connection as his sister Amelia transferred to Nebraska for the track and field program in January.

What can he bring to Nebraska football?

Flynt will be able to bring an athletic tight end to Nebraska football.  Flynt does a good job of making catches in space, and that allows him to make things happen after the catch. He moves well for his size and has good hands. He is a player that can succeed in this offense, and will be able to be a big-time weapon. Moreover, he is yet another weapon from the state of Texas. This is an area where the Nebraska football coaching staff has really honed in on.

With this commitment, the 2024 Nebraska football recruiting class is shaping up quite nicely. They landed a commitment in Willis McGahee IV on Saturday, and Flynt now makes it five commitments in total for the class. The class itself ranks 30th overall nationally. This now makes three players in the state of Texas for the 2024 class.

It will be interesting to see exactly how Flynt fits into this offense. He should be able to make an impact due to his athleticism and catching ability. Nebraska football has had success with the tight end position in recent years in terms of production. Flynt should be able to add to that.  It will be fascinating to see how Wager works with him and how he develops over the course of his career.
