Nebraska football landed a commitment from 2025 athlete Jackson Carpenter on Saturday. He made the announcement on X.

He is the 72nd overall athlete in the 2025 class, and the seventh overall athlete in the class from the state of Nebraska per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He was recruited to the Huskers by Garret McGuire. He also had offers from the likes of Kansas, North Dakota State, Northern Iowa, and Dartmouth.

There is a Nebraska football connection as well with this commitment. His father Tim, was a tight end and fullback for the program from 1993-1997.

Carpenter played wide receiver at the high school level. He is very good at making things happen after the catch, and he also has a knack for finding the football on jump balls. That’s where his athleticism comes into play the most. Carpenter was able to come back to the ball and make difficult catches on underthrown passes, and he was able to make those type of catches on a consistent basis.

All told, he recorded 28 catches for 514 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He averaged 57.1 yards per game. He also showed his ability to spread the field, as he recorded 18.4 yards per catch.

What can he bring to Nebraska Football?

Carpenter will be able to provide another weapon for Nebraska football. The wide receiver room is already loaded, and Carpenter will undoubtedly add to it. Of course, some names will be departed from the room by the time Carpenter gets to campus. Even still, the group will be solid for years to come.

Carpenter’s ability to run after the catch as well as make those acrobatic catches certainly fits the profile of the rest of the receivers in the room. Nebraska football wants playmakers at the receiver spot and this is just another example of that.

It will be interesting to see how he exactly fits when the time comes. Nevertheless, he is no slouch.  The Huskers were able to land another player from in-state in what has been a very fruitful couple groups of Nebraska prospects. Keeping Carpenter home was a major win for this coaching staff, and just another example of the staff being able to close the deal. Now it’s time for development
