Petras spoke with Hail Varsity about his recent visit to Nebraska, what schools are standing out and when he plans to commit.
HV: You recently visited Nebraska. What were your impressions of Lincoln and the university?
SP: I absolutely loved my time in Lincoln. From the moment I got there it felt like a special place. The community and football culture there is incredible. The university seemed amazing as well. I loved the coaching staff and the program as a whole.
HV: How long have you been in contact with Nebraska and who is the main coach recruiting you?
SP: I’ve been in contact with Nebraska since my sophomore year and Danny Langsdorf is the main coach I talk to.
HV: You currently hold eight reported offers. Are any of those offered schools standing out to you early?
SP: No one is standing out yet. As of right now, I’m wide open to everybody.
HV: Have there been any schools that haven’t offered you but you feel may be close to doing so?
SP: Right now, I can only speak for those who have offered. Close depends on who you ask.
HV: You threw for over 3,000 yards as a junior and helped lead Marin Catholic to the California Division 3 state championship game as a junior. What do you think was the key to your team’s success and your individual success in 2016?
SP: Focusing on the process. We pride ourselves on having intense effort and concentration on the here and now, the little things. We had some really talented players and were focused on everyone doing their own job.
HV: What do you believe is your greatest strength on the football field?
SP: My ability to control a game and make any throw on the field.
HV: What is one area you’d still like to improve on?
SP: I’m always working on every area of my game, but I’d say improving my mental game is what I work on the most.
HV: Do you have any additional visit plans for this spring and summer?
SP: [Nothing] set in stone as of right now.
HV: Do you have a specific time set for when you want to commit?
SP: No. As soon as I have found the right school, I’ll commit.
