Nebraska’s Junior Day event marked the sixth time that 2020 4-star offensive tackle Turner Corcoran has visited Lincoln since Scott Frost took over the program. Last time we talked back in November, he said that the Huskers “felt like family.” Corcoran could be the No. 1 overall target for Nebraska in the 2020 cycle, so I wanted to get his thoughts on the weekend and where he stands in his recruitment. We also discussed his decision timeline.
Here is the full Q&A with Corcoran:
Who came with you to Lincoln this time?
“My mom, dad and my sister all came this time. It was my sister’s first time.”
What did your sister think of the visit?
“She said she had fun. She said it was everything she expected and more because she’s never had anything to compare it to because she’s never been on one of my trips.”
What did you guys get to do on campus?
“Basically all we did was be around the coaches and the players for most of the time.”
Have you done any trimming to your top 7?
“I have trimmed it down but I’m not making anything public as of now.”
When do you ideally want to have a decision made by?
“Hopefully around summer, but if not it’ll be more toward the middle of the season.”
What are your goals for senior year?
“My goals for my senior year are really just to have fun and play hard. I got injured some throughout my junior year and I’m trying to keep my body from going through that again.”
What's the hardest part of being in this situation where people want to know your decision and you haven't announced yet?
“My decision is mine and I honestly just want it to fit the best for me and what I’m most comfortable with.”
What do you like to do outside of football?
“I like to be around friends when I’m not doing anything football related. I’m a pretty sociable person. Or [I’ll] lift whenever I can.”
What do you want to study in college?
“I’ve always wanted to coach, so maybe I could go into some leadership classes to help with that.”
