NSD December 2018 - Jimmy Fritzsche

By NU Athletic Communications

Jimmy Fritzsche, an athletic offensive lineman who also lined up at tight end for Greenville High School, is the first South Carolina player to sign with Nebraska out of high school since Tyrone Legette in 1988.

Fritzsche helped Greenville reach the state playoffs with a 7-4 record as a senior, when the Red Raiders averaged nearly 400 yards of total offense per game and topped the 40-point mark six times. As a junior in 2017, Frtizsche caught five passes for 35 yards as a tight end for a 12-2 Greenville squad that advanced to the state quarterfinals.

Fritzsche held scholarship offers from several Power Five programs, including Clemson, Purdue and Syracuse. The three-star prospect chose Nebraska after also visiting Clemson, Connecticut and Syracuse.
