2017 Outlook
Redshirt freshman Branden Hohenstein is among a large group of young players who will look to earn playing time at tight end in 2017. Nebraska lost three four-year letterwinners at tight end to graduation following the 2016 season. Hohenstein spent his first season in Lincoln as a redshirt, while adding strength and muscle to his 6-4 frame.

2016 (Redshirt)
Hohenstein redshirted and worked on the scout team. 

Before Nebraska (Bishop Heelan HS)
Hohenstein earned Class 3A first-team all-state honors as a defensive lineman in 2015, and also played tight end for Bishop Heelan Catholic in Sioux City. Hohenstein helped lead the Crusaders to a state playoff berth in 2015 under Coach Roger Jansen. In 2014, Bishop Heelan finished as the Class 3A state runner-up.

Branden was born on Aug. 6, 1997, and is the son of Kevin and Jeanie Hohenstein. He is a construction management major and earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall of 2016. He was also a member of the Brook Berringer and Tom Osborne Citizenship Teams in 2017. He has volunteered his time with Uplifting Athletes, Husker Heroes and local hospital visits.
