The Huskers hosted their biggest official visit group of the coach Scott Frost Era this weekend. There were 13 official visitors in Lincoln to see what the program has to offer. One of those visitors was already plenty familiar with what the program has to offer. Elkhorn South edge defender Maverick Noonan was back on campu,s but this time for his official visit.

The defender was last in Lincoln for the spring game. Noonan had a good time on his official visit this weekend. He said it was like all the unofficial visits he has taken to Nebraska except everything had more detail.
“Everything was just more in-depth,” Noonan said. “The way the coaches’ coach and the interactions with the staff. I got to be around the players more, so you got a good feel for them. Being around the players was important to me.”
Noonan said that it was great being able to learn about the school from the players’ points of view. Seeing a familiar face was one thing that helped him get along with the players. His player host for the weekend was offensive lineman Teddy Prochazka. The pair knew each other as former teammates at Elkhorn South.
Noonan was able to watch film with defensive front coach Mike Dawson. They’ve watched film together before, but Dawson went over more stunts that the team like to use this time.
“Oh, it was good,” Noonan said. “He’s a great coach and I like him.”
Next up Noonan has a pair of official visits on the books. He will visit Stanford and Iowa in June. Once he takes the visits, his plan is to commit to a school since he will have all the information he needs. The only slight change of plans is that he will no longer take an official visit to Minnesota.
Part of getting the information that he needs is making sure the school he picks has what he is looking for.
“Just the school that I see myself fit at,” Noonan said. “Both in the academic side and then with football, too. I feel Nebraska has those two things. So, it’s why I took my official there.”
