2020 OL Turner Corcoran Enjoys Well-Rounded Visit at Nebraska

May 20, 2018

On Saturday, Nebraska had another unofficial visitor on campus. This time it was a big-time 2020 offensive lineman who has seen his stock soar over the last month or so. Four-star offensive tackle Turner Corcoran‍ (6-6, 270) from Lawrence Free State in Lawrence, Kansas, made the trip up to Lincoln with his parents. 

“It was great, Corcoran said.”  “I really enjoyed talking to Coach Frost, Coach Austin, Coach Held and almost everybody. I got to talk to the strength coach and I got to talk to the guy that helps runs their academics. That was really cool because I haven’t done that at any other colleges so that was good to see.” 

Both his mom and dad made the trip with him and they said they visit was impressive. They liked that there was a lot of science that goes into the everyday lives of players at Nebraska. His dad commented that resources available to players really are impressive.. So, what else stood out to the prospect about Nebraska?

“I’ve never really seen facilities like Nebraska," Corcoran said. "It was really incredible to see something like that. It was a really good experience overall visiting Nebraska.”

I mentioned earlier that Corcoran has seen his recruitment really take off in recent weeks. During the evaluation period, he has picked up offers from Wisconsin, Ohio State, Nebraska, Missouri and Notre Dame within the last two or three weeks. I asked him what he thought about all of the activity around him.

“It’s been pretty crazy and hectic. There is a lot of stuff going on but you have to stay grounded and everything. I still have to finish up school with finals coming up this week. I’m looking forward to that.” 

For the summer, Corcoran tells me he plans on doing the Notre Dame camp on June 22nd or June 23rd and may go to Missouri’s camp. He is also considering scheduling some visits with local schools around his area. He doesn’t think distance will be a factor with whatever school he picks so long as he can make it there before he ultimately makes a decision. There are other factors that will weigh on his choice. 

“Education is very important to me. I want to look at that before anything else. Also, finding a family environment, community and fan base to help support us. That will help a lot with my final decision but also the coaches that are at the university.”
