2020 (Senior)
Brenden Jaimes started Nebraska's first seven games at left tackle before opting out of the season's final game to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft. Jaimes, who earned honorable-mention All-Big Ten honors for the third straight season as a senior, finished his career with a streak of 31 consecutive starts at left tackle and 40 consecutive start overall. Jaimes made his 39th consecutive start at Purdue, setting a Nebraska record for consecutive starts by an offensive lineman. Jaimes' 40 career starts rank second all-time among all offensive linemen in Nebraska history, one shy of the record of 41 by Jeremiah Sirles. His blocking helped Nebraska boast the Big Ten's second-best rushing attack in 2020.

2019 (Junior)
Jaimes started all 12 games at left tackle as a junior. Nebraska’s Offensive MVP, Jaimes helped the Husker offense rank third in the Big Ten in rushing and fifth in total offense. For his efforts, Jaimes earned honorable-mention All-Big Ten recognition for the second straight season.

Jaimes was a major reason Nebraska produced its most total yards in a Big Ten Conference game (690 yards at Illinois) and tied its highest point total in a Big Ten game (54 at Maryland). Against Illinois, the Huskers totaled 300 yards rushing and 300 yards passing for just the second time in school history en route to gaining the most yards in any conference game since 2007. Nebraska also set a school record for team completion percentage against Indiana (87.0 percent).

2018 (Sophomore)
Nebraska’s primary right tackle in 2017, Jaimes moved to left tackle in 2018 and started every game at the position, earning honorable-mention All-Big Ten accolades. Nebraska averaged 456.2 yards of total offense per game in 2018 - ranking 25th nationally in that category - while producing more than 560 yards of offense in four games. Jaimes and the offensive line helped Nebraska post its most yards (659 against Minnesota) and highest point total (54 against Illinois) in a Big Ten Conference game dating back to the Huskers joining the league in 2011. Jaimes specifically helped protect true freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez, who ranked 12th nationally in total offense per game and led all FBS freshmen nationally in that category while setting three Husker season records. Nebraska also produced its first 1,000-yard receiver in school history in 2018 and had its first 1,000-yard rusher since 2014. 

Jaimes and the offensive line helped Nebraska total 565 yards in the season opener against Colorado. After Nebraska posted back-to-back games with more than 500 yards of total offense against Purdue and No. 16 Wisconsin, Jaimes helped the Huskers total 606 yards of offense in a win against Illinois, when Nebraska set a school record with its seventh straight game producing at least 450 yards of total offense.

2017 (Freshman)
Jaimes was arguably the most productive true freshman offensive lineman in school history. After the coaching staff initially considered a redshirt season, Jaimes started the final nine games at right tackle. When he made his debut by starting the Rutgers game, Jaimes became just the fifth true freshman offensive lineman to start at Nebraska and only the 11th Husker offensive lineman to play as a true freshman. Jaimes’ nine starts were not only a school record for a true freshman offensive lineman, but he nearly matched the combined total of the four previous Husker true freshmen starters on the offensive line (11). 

Jaimes was one of only three true freshmen offensive linemen in the Big Ten to start every conference game in 2017, and he was an honorable-mention All-Freshman team selection by the Big Ten Network.

Jaimes and the Husker offensive line helped Nebraska rank second in the Big Ten in passing (277.5 yards per game) in 2017. Nebraska totaled 3,330 passing yards, the fifth-highest passing total in school history. The line protected Tanner Lee as he threw for 3,143 yards in his only season as a Husker, while Stanley Morgan Jr. set a school record with 986 receiving yards and JD Spielman posted the first 200-yard receiving game in school history against No. 9 Ohio State.

Before Nebraska (Lake Travis HS)
Jaimes was a standout on the offensive line at Lake Travis High School in Austin. Jaimes paved the way for an offense that averaged nearly 500 yards per game in 2016, including better than 290 passing yards per game. Lake Travis posted a 15-1 record en route to a Class 6A Division 1 state title. Coach Hank Carter’s team was also ranked among the nation’s top prep teams in 2016. 

Jaimes was named the District Offensive Lineman of the Year, was first-team All-Centex and was a Class 6A honorable-mention all-state choice as a senior. He was a second-team all-state honoree and all-district choice in 2015, when Lake Travis posted a 15-1 record and was the Class 6A state runner-up. Lake Travis was an area finalist in 2014 when Jaimes earned honorable-mention all-district accolades.

Jaimes was ranked among the top 300 overall prospects in the nation by Scout.com, which also listed him as one of the nation’s top 30 offensive tackles and the third-best tackle prospect in Texas. He was also listed among the top 50 tackles in the nation by both ESPN and 247Sports. 

Jaimes only visited Nebraska. He also had offers from Baylor, California, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa State, TCU, Texas and Texas Tech among others.

Jaimes participated in lacrosse as a freshman and was also a track standout. He was a regional finalist in the discus in 2016 and 2017.

Brenden is the son of Mark and Erica Jaimes and he was born on May 28, 1999. He earned his degree in criminology and criminal justice in December of 2020. Jaimes has volunteered his time with a Day of Service, the Nebraska Football Road Race and local hospital visits.
