Brody Jindra liked what he saw. So one of the state’s best young baseball prospects saw no reason to wait to commit to Nebraska.
The Millard South freshman announced his addition to the Huskers’ 2026 class on Friday night, capping a whirlwind stretch in which a standout performance at NU’s prospect camp last weekend led to an offer to join the program in three years.
“It’s a mix of shock and excitement,” Jindra said. “It’s a school I want to go to, I really like the coaches. It’s just something you can’t turn down.”
Jindra is a two-way recruit for now, he said, though that could change as his career progresses. The right-hander already commands mid-80s fastball velocity and is coming off a summer campaign with the Nebraska Prospects in which he made one error as a regular at shortstop and hit .359 in 64 at-bats. Power is part of his projection either way.
The Huskers were Jindra’s first offer. The 15-year-old is well regarded by Perfect Game, which pegs him the No. 125 overall prospect in his class. He joins a 2026 Big Red group that is among the nation’s best in the very early going with other pledges from top two-way talents Beau Peterson (No. 11 overall from Shawnee, Kansas) and Bryce Fountain (No. 193 overall from Norris High School).
The Nebraska camp has already produced four other pledges this week in 2023 infielder Will Jesske of Lincoln Southeast, 2024 infielder Devin Nunez of Navasota, Texas, 2025 left-handed pitcher Cal Cooper of Elkhorn South and 2025 pitcher/infielder Drew Grego of Bellevue West.
