Over the weekend, Nebraska had a chance to host a lot of recruits for the final home game of the season against Michigan State. It wasn’t just 2019 prospects on hand for the big 9-6 victory, but there were many 2020 and even 2021 prospects in attendance as well.
One of the 2021 prospects was Elkhorn South offensive tackle Teddy Prochazka. The sophomore picked up an offer from Nebraska prior to the Minnesota game last month. He returned to Memorial Stadium on Saturday for another visit.
I caught up with him Sunday morning to get his thoughts on his latest visit.
Here is the full Q&A with Prochazka:
What were your overall thoughts on the game and gameday experience?
“Yesterday was one of the better experiences I’ve had at a Nebraska game in a while”.
What was it like hanging with the other recruits and commits? Anyone in particular that you talked to?
“It’s pretty cool being able to be around all of those awesome athletes. I talked to Travion Ford yesterday about his offer from LSU.”
What was the moment like when you got the offer from the Huskers?
“I mean I can’t really put into words how I was feeling. I was excited and totally caught off guard. I wasn’t expecting it to happen at all.”
How would you describe your relationship with Greg Austin?
“He’s a really good guy and a great coach and he has told me how excited he is when I’m there, and that he can’t wait to get to know me more.”
What other schools are recruiting you right now?
“Iowa, Iowa State and Northwestern.”
What are some of the things you are looking for most in a school?
“I’m looking for a school with a great environment from the team to the fans to the academics.”
Greg is the Recruiting Analyst for Hail Varsity and has covered Husker athletics since 2013. He has always had a passion for sports while growing up in the Chicago area. As he got older and had to hang up his cleats and sneakers, he realized his passion for sports went beyond just watching and attending games. He has covered many events from the Rose Bowl to championship boxing matches. If he’s not talking sports, he’s hovering over his grill. He is married to an amazing woman, Kim, and they have a dog that barks when Greg yells at the TV during games.
