Is this Husker football player dating JoJo Siwa?

Is this Husker football player dating JoJo Siwa?

It appears JoJo Siwa might have a new boyfriend, and he’s a Husker.

Siwa is, of course, a social media celebrity with hit pop songs, a massive following (more than 9 million followers on Instagram) and a bright, big, colorful fashion sense.

Siwa’s also from Omaha. (Last year, the city even declared Aug. 6 as JoJo Siwa Day.)

And the Internet is abuzz that the 16-year-old star is (maybe) dating Elliott Brown, a former Elkhorn South High School quarterback who is now a walk-on for the Huskers.

Siwa hasn’t said they’re dating, but Brown’s been appearing in her Instagram photos and videos. Siwa refers to him as “E,” but Internet sleuths figured out who he was pretty quickly. Brown’s own Instagram following has grown to more than 20,000.

Brown will be a freshman walk-on at wide receiver.

He chose to walk on at Nebraska over accepting scholarship offers from Northwest Missouri State, Augustana and the University of Nebraska at Kearney, according to

“I realized this is where I want to be and I want this to be my home for the next chapter in my life,” Brown told The World-Herald about Nebraska. “Plus I couldn’t find a better group of coaches to push me and challenge me to become a better person on and off the field.”

Brown’s father, Lance, was a wingback on the national championship Husker teams in 1995 and 1997.
