Nebraska P Jacob Hohl withdraws his name from the transfer portal​

Jacob Hohl, a punter for Nebraska, has decided to pull his name out of the transfer portal.

Hohl started his career at Nebraska Wesleyan where he was the starting punter for two seasons. In his time with the Prairie Wolves, he punted 64 times for an average of 40.6 yards per punt
Hohl then joined the Cornhuskers where he has spent the last two seasons. However, he has yet to appear for the program to this point.
Hohl played high school football at Southwest (NE) as a native of Lincoln. He was a recruit that was a part of the 2020 cycle.
Some may know Jacob Hohl for his father being Erich Hohl. He was a tight end for the ‘Huskers in the early 90s. That included his senior year where he played on the first of three national title-winning teams under Tom Osborne.
With Hohl’s return, Nebraska has now only lost nine players in the portal this offseason. Six of those were on the offense, including QBs Chubba Purdy and Jeff Sims, with three others coming from their defense. Hohl was set to be the only loss when it came to specialists.
On the flip side, the Cornhuskers have added six players to make up the No. 21 class per Tater Island’s 2024 Team Transfer Portal Rankings. Matt Rhule and his staff added four offensive players in WRs Isaiah Neyor (Texas) and Jahmal Banks (Wake Forest), RB Dante Dowdell (Oregon), IOL Micah Mazzccua (Florida). Then, on defense, they earned commitments from LB Stefon Thompson (Syracuse) and CB Blye Hill (Saint Francis (PA)).

The Huskers brought in six players who are more plug-and-play performers than headliners, but that should work out fine in Lincoln. At the top of the list is linebacker Stefon Thompson, who recorded 52 tackles, including four for loss, at Syracuse. Receiver Jahmal Banks had 59 catches for 653 yards and four touchdowns at Wake Forest. They are joined by guard Micah Mazzccua, who started 11 games at Florida last year.

Three others are in the projects category. Receiver Isaiah Neyor (Texas) and running back Dante Dowdell (Oregon) had little production but have high potential. Nebraska added cornerback Blye Hill from FCS St. Francis (Pa.).

The outgoing players won’t affect the Huskers much this season. Their top two quarterbacks (Jeff Sims and Chubba Purdy) both hit the portal, but with five-star quarterback Dylan Raiola on campus, it clears the path for a new era.


Heisman Winner

With classes underway in Lincoln and players in the midst of the third week of winter conditioning workouts, Nebraska updated its official online roster on Tuesday morning, providing updates on several positions for the spring and updating who is on the roster after the offseason.

Here’s a quick look at what stood out:

— Veteran Nebraska guard Ethan Piper is no longer listed on the roster. Piper suffered a serious season-ending knee injury in the win over Northwestern and was seen on the sidelines toward the end of the regular season in a wheelchair watching his teammates going through warmups.

Piper has one season of eligibility remaining if he wants it, but faces a long road of rehabilitation to return from the injury. Piper started 15 games for the Huskers at guard over the last two seasons. His situation will likely be addressed by Nebraska head coach Matt Rhule at an early February press conference.

"As I'm talking to Ethan, he's like, 'Yeah, this really stinks but it's probably a really good thing for the team because now Justin (Evans-Jenkins) is getting some reps, you can really develop him.' To think that anybody could think like that," Rhule said in admiration of the injured Husker O-lineman's attitude after the season-ending setback.

— Also no longer listed on the roster is former Alabama defender Kaine Williams. Williams played in four games -- all in 2023 -- in his two seasons at Nebraska. Williams entered Nebraska as a safety, but moved to linebacker last season.

— Nebraska made official the move of former defensive lineman Ru’Quan Buckley from the defensive side of the ball to the offensive side of the ball.

Rhule said in November that he believes Buckley “is going to be a dynamic guard.”

— Nebraska redshirt freshmen Jeremiah Charles and Brice Turner are both listed as defensive backs. Charles and Turner spent time on both sides of the ball before transitioning over to defensive back late in the season in 2023. Defensive backs coach Evan Cooper and wide receivers coach Garret McGuire had been vocal in the fall with claiming both of the players for their respective side of the ball.

— Senior wide receiver Isaiah Garcia-Castaneda remains on the roster after suffering a season-ending knee injury last year against Minnesota.

— Redshirt freshman Jason Maciejczak is listed as an offensive lineman on the current roster update, while redshirt freshman lineman Mason Goldman is listed on the defensive side of the ball.

— Walk-on punter Jacob Hohl, who entered the transfer portal, but removed his name last week, is now back on the Huskers’ spring roster.

— Several Nebraska walk-ons, who went through Senior Day ceremonies with eligibility remaining are no longer listed on the roster. That includes special teams standout Grant Tagge, running back Treven Luben, fullback Braden Klover, lineman Keegan Menning and defensive back Ashton Hausmann.

— Nebraska’s updated roster also includes players who have signed, but are not yet on campus and won’t go through spring ball. When those players are factored into the mix, the Husker roster sits at 149 players.
