Nebraska Commits React to Wisconsin Weekend

November 17, 2019

The Huskers hosted several official visitors, commits and priority targets for future classes over the weekend. The game against Wisconsin did not go as Coach Scott Frost and his staff would have liked, yet progress was shown on the field. 

There is plenty to dive into with reactions from the weekend, including how it went for the six commits that were back in Lincoln for the game. Turner Corcoran‍, Zavier Betts, Blaise Gunnerson‍, Tamon Lynum‍, Ronald Delancy III‍ and 2021 commit Teddy Prochazka‍ were all in town.

Hail Varsity caught up with Lynum, a defensive back commit, before the visit.

“I’m most looking forward to seeing the fans go crazy on Saturday,” Lynum said. “I love it here, man. My boy Braxton Clark makes it even better. We [are] from the same city so I’m just following behind him. He can show me the ways so when I get here I will be ready.”

Lynum was just as excited after the game too.

“It was great being back in my second hometown this weekend,” he said. I can’t wait to come in January and get to work.”

Lynum said that seeing all the diehard Husker fans in red and white going crazy for Nebraska was a big highlight. He also got a chance to speak with the other commits in town to talk a little football.

Corcoran got a chance to do some peer recruiting with the guys who were in town for official visits. He also enjoyed his time in Lincoln again. 

“The visit was good,” Corcoran said. “It was great seeing Blaise [Gunnerson] and Zavier [Betts] plus also to be able to go with Colter [Maldonado] and my running back Tyler [Bowden].”

The 4-star lineman is all set to enroll early and join the Huskers this January. 

“Everything is on pace,” he said. “School is a little bit easier now that footballs over. I think I’m down to like one month and 23 days. I’ve got a countdown going on my phone so I’m pumped to get up there for winter conditioning and spring ball.”

Gunnerson said the trip was great and that he can’t wait to get to Lincoln. The outside linebacker from Iowa had surgery recently but all is going well with his recovery. 

“I’m doing great,” Gunnerson said. “The recovery process looking to be faster than my last hip. I had surgery two weeks ago.”

Elkhorn South offensive lineman Teddy Prochazka said it was “awesome as usual” being back in Lincoln. He was also glad to have another offensive lineman with him in the class of 2021. Henry Lutovsky joined the class Sunday. 

“I am super excited to get him [Lutovsky] on board,” Prochazka said.”I can’t wait to work with him.”

Lynum wasn’t the only Florida defensive back commit to make it to Lincoln this weekend. Ronald Delancy III said the visit was great too. The Husker commits came away from the weekend feeling closer as a group and as excited as ever to be Huskers.
