2023 Quarterback Reese Mooney Excited to Meet Nebraska Coaches This Weekend

October 07, 2021

Nebraska hosted its top 2024 quarterback target for a visit last weekend. Dylan Raiola was in town for the Northwestern game. He had a “specia”’ visit to Nebraska. The Huskers’ top 2023 quarterback target Reese Mooney will be in town for the Michigan game.

Mooney has been to Lincoln three times before but hasn’t been for an unofficial visit. There is plenty he is looking forward to about making this trip.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the facilities,” Mooney said. “I also want to meet with the coaching staff in person. I’ve talked to them on the phone but I just want to shake their hands and talk ball with them. Then just see a heck of a game.”

Mooney describes his relationship with the Huskers’ coaching staff as a “pretty dang good” relationship. He usually talks to quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco all the time. Verduzco has been busy now that he’s in season mode but he checks in on the Louisiana native often. Mooney has been following along closely with the Huskers’ season. He thinks that they are on the rise and will be a team to beat over the coming seasons.

He’s looking forward to seeing how they play these next few games. Mooney also likes what he’s seen from the offense with how the quarterback is used.

“Just being able to get out of the pocket and deliver some balls, but also run when I have to or I need to,” Mooney said. “That’s a really good thing for me.”

Unfortunately for the quarterback his junior season is over. He suffered a broken ankle a couple weeks ago. He was sliding on a scramble and his foot got caught underneath him while a defender hit him. Mooney was having an excellent season to that point. He was fourth in the state in passing yards and touchdowns.

Mooney has been to several schools this season. He’s checked out Louisville, Cincinnati, Illinois, Vanderbilt and Miami. As he visits these schools he has a clear number one thing he is looking for in a future school.

“The academics is the most important thing for me and just to get my education,” Mooney said. “Also, development and also the facilities.”
