Iowa, Oregon, Ole Miss, Wisconsin and LSU are among the schools with offers to Hickman, who spent a lot time during Saturday's pregame warmups standing at midfield with Burke teammate Nick Henrich, quarterback recruit Luke McCaffrey and offensive line recruit Michael Lynn.

Most of Nebraska of Nebraska's committed recruits were in Lincoln this weekend, including Henrich, McCaffrey and Lynn.

York's Garrett Snodgrass, Norfolk Catholic's Ethan Piper, Scottsbluff's Garrett Nelson and Jamie Nance of Blanchard, Oklahoma, and Jackson Hannah of Nashville, Tennessee, were on the guest list.

So, too, was Lincoln Southeast senior punter Grant Detlefsen, who committed to the Huskers as a walk-on Thursday night.

Nebraska coach Scott Frost came over to greet some of the Huskers' 2019 commitments during pregame warmups.
