Nebraska football is hosting several visitors this weekend, and one of them is former Georgia tight end Brett Seither. This was first reported by the Omaha World-Herald.

Seither measures in at six-foot-five, 228 pounds. He appeared in 27 games, and made three catches for 51 yards. He also had a touchdown in four seasons of play for Georgia.

The tight end room for both Nebraska and Georgia offers quite a juxtaposition. Georgia is returning their star tight and Brock Bowers. Bowers is coming off a season that saw him record 63 catches for 942 yards and seven touchdowns. Bowers is going to return to Georgia next season, and gives Seither an opportunity to look elsewhere.

Nebraska’s tight end room is full of projected talent, but unproven. Thomas Fidone will look to play in his first full season, after battling with injuries over the past couple seasons. James Carnie and AJ Rollins add supplementary pieces to the room, but have yet to see any meaningful action on the field. The room itself is unproven, and Seither could add some much-needed veteran production.

Nebraska football has been looking at upgrading the tight end room over the past couple of weeks, and Seither is certainly part of that group. It will be intriguing to see how the tight end fits in offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield’s offense. Nevertheless, having a tight end of Seither’s caliber in for a visit is encouraging. He would immediately give the room a boost, and would allow for the other tight ends in the room to continue to develop at a slower pace.
