Iowa State football flips 3-star tight end Benjamin Brahmer from Nebraska

Iowa State football picked a late addition to the 2023 class on Tuesday when the Cyclones flipped long-time Nebraska tight end commit Benjamin Brahmer.

Several reports circulated online early Tuesday morning that Brahmer had committed to Iowa State. He has not made a post on social media about the commitment, but his current Twitter bio does read “Iowa State TE.”

The 6-foot-6, 215-pound tight end out of Pierce, Nebraska, is the No. 5 player in his state and listed as a top-100 wide receiver, according to 247Sports Composite.

The Cyclones were the first program to offer Brahmer back in February 2021. Nebraska offered him nine days after Iowa State, and the in-state tight end prospect committed in early April 2021. Brahmer was the first commit in Nebraska’s 2023 class.

He stuck with the Huskers for more than a year and a half, but with Nebraska's hiring of new head coach Matt Rhule, he flipped to Iowa State.

Rhule visited Brahmer over the weekend, possibly in an attempt to secure his commitment through the transition of a new coaching staff. Brahmer is the second in-state recruit for Nebraska to rescind a commitment, joining four-star athlete Malachi Coleman.

Brahmer is the 20th player to commit to Matt Campbell’s 2023 class. He joins fellow Nebraska recruit Beni Ngoyi, a three-star wide receiver out of Lincoln. Iowa State’s senior recruiting class is currently ranked No. 31 in the country.
