On Friday, Nebraska hosted several players from the state of Iowa for the 2020 recruiting class and beyond. One of the prospects that was on hand for the Big Red BBQ was 2021 offensive lineman Henry Lutovsky.

The big man (6-6, 325) from Mount Pleasant High School told me that he really liked the trip and got a lot of questions answered that he had coming in. This wasn’t his first trip to Lincoln, as he was at the spring game back in April. He got to do a bit more while on campus this time though.
“My mom, dad, and I went over and we toured the facilities,” Lutovsky said. “We met with Coach [Scott] Frost and Coach [Greg] Austin, toured the facility, took pictures and got to talk to some of the players and get to know them.”
The Iowan said that he got a good vibe from the players on the team stating that “they’re a lot like me, I think I would fit in well with them.” One thing that has been emphasized with Frost’s staff is recruiting the state of Iowa. Lutovsky took notice of that on the visit, too.
“I noticed there were a few [athletes from Iowa],” he said. “I think it just helps show that Coach Frost and his staff are confident that they can get players to go over and play for them instead of Iowa or ISU.”
As Lutovsky makes his way around the region on visits, he has a few things in mind that he is looking for in his future school.
“[I want to be] close to home plus fit in with the players and coaches that stress building relationships,” he said. “I also want a staff that understands that I am there to get an education, not just play football.”
