2019 Season Outlook
Sophomore offensive lineman Broc Bando heads into the 2019 season looking for his first playing time as a Husker. Bando spent the spring working at offensive tackle, where he will compete to be one of the top reserves behind returning starters Brenden Jaimes and Matt Farniok. The 6-5, 310-pound Bando added depth on the line last season after redshirting in 2017. Bando is a Lincoln native who began his career at Southeast High School, before transferring to IMG Academy in Florida.
2018 (Redshirt Freshman)
Bando added depth to the Husker offensive line as a redshirt freshman in 2018, but he did not appear in a game.
Bando redshirted in his first season in the program.
Before Nebraska (Lincoln Southeast HS/IMG Academy)
Bando was part of one of the nation’s top prep teams at IMG Academy. Playing for Coach Kevin Wright, Bando was a standout at both offensive guard and tackle, helping the Ascenders to an 11-0 record in 2016. IMG Academy finished the year ranked No. 3 in the nation in the USA Today prep rankings. Behind a strong offensive line, IMG Academy averaged nearly 390 yards per game and scored better than 35 points per contest.
Bando was also part of a perfect season at IMG Academy in 2015, as the school posted a 9-0 record and was ranked among the nation’s top 10 prep teams. Bando began his career at Lincoln Southeast in 2014, when he had 30 tackles and two sacks as a defensive lineman and earned honorable-mention All-City accolades from the Lincoln Journal Star. Bando also threw the shot put as a freshman and sophomore at Southeast.
Bando was ranked as one of the nation’s top 50 offensive guards in the 247Sports composite rankings and among the top linemen in Florida. Bando had offers from numerous schools, including Louisville, Mississippi State, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Kansas State before selecting the Huskers.
Broc was born on Oct. 2, 1998, and is the son of Shannon Hanke. He is a business administration major. He has volunteered his time with Husker Heroes, Elliott Elementary School, the Nebraska Football Road race and local hospital visits.
