2019 Season Outlook
Andre Hunt excelled during spring practice putting the redshirt freshman in position to contend for extensive playing time at wide receiver. The 6-0, 190-pound Hunt spent the majority of his time working at the X receiver spot where Nebraska must replace record-setting receiver Stanley Morgan Jr.
Hunt did see action in two games in 2018, but was able to redshirt under the new NCAA eligibility rule. Hunt also earned a spot on Nebraska’s travel roster throughout the season. Hunt was one of the top receivers in California after a standout prep career at Paraclete High School.
Hunt appeared in two games as a true freshman, seeing time at wide receiver against Troy and Bethune-Cookman. By playing in less than four games, Hunt was able to utilize his redshirt season in 2018. In addition to appearing in two games, Hunt was also a member of Nebraska's travel roster for all five road games.

One of the top receivers in California, Hunt joined the Huskers from Paraclete High School in California. Hunt helped Paraclete and Coach Dean Herrington to a 13-2 record in 2017. Hunt caught 67 passes for 1,185 yards and 18 touchdowns as a senior while accounting for 21 total touchdowns. For his efforts, Hunt was one of five receivers named to the Division 5 All-CIF (California Interscholastic Federation) team.
A consensus three-star recruit, Hunt was rated among the nation’s top 100 receivers by both Rivals and 247Sports. He had more than a dozen scholarship offers, including USC, Colorado, Washington State and Utah.
