Nebraska Football Recruiting: Huskers extend offer to promising Elkhorn tight end Chase Loftin


The Nebraska football team continued racking up targets for the 2025 class with in-state prospect Chase Loftin getting a new offer on Friday night.

In the last week or so, the Nebraska football team has been working on adding bodies to the 2025 class more than anything else. On Friday night, the Huskers handed out yet another official offer to an in-state prospect that’s already gotten quite a bit of attention from one of the best programs in the country.

Chase Loftin might only have two Power 5 offers total, but the schools that came calling so far are impressive enough. If the Nebraska football team wants to win him over, they will need to fight off the Oklahoma Sooners and Iowa State Cyclones (so far) to do it.

The tight end – a position the Huskers have recruited hard over the last few weeks – out of Elkhorn is still someone whose stock is rising. However, it looks like he might take off any minute.

Loftin announced he received an official offer from the Nebraska football program on Friday night. He’s reportedly keeping an eye on programs like Kansas State and Missouri.

It’s clear that while Loftin might not be getting a ton of attention for what he did for Elkhorn this past season, he does get accolades when he shows coaches what he can do. That was certainly the case a couple of weeks ago when he attended the Brent Venables Oklahoma camp. He was one of several players to leave that weekend with an offer.

Nebraska football chalks up another offer

Listed at 6-5 and 200 pounds, observers say that Chase Loftin’s movements are highly fluid for someone of his size and stature. In particular, his hands and abilities to make plays down the field have impressed onlookers. That adds up, considering he had 39 catches for 577 yards and five touchdowns in his sophomore season.

Currently, Iowa State is considered the front runner for Loftin’s services. However, Nebraska football hopes it can cash in on the home-state advantage and reel him in.
