Nebraska's Black Friday got off to a great start when they got a big addition to the 2019 recruiting class and the Snodgrass family has had a heck of a last few days.
On Monday night, Coach Glen Snodgrass led the York Dukes finished off an incredible state championship run by shutting out Omaha Skutt Catholic 31-0 to win its first state championship.
Rising junior Garrett Snodgrass (6-3, 205) starred on the field in the game. He rushed for 209 yards on 26 carries and added two touchdowns. On defense he had five tackles, 1.5 for loss, a sack and three pass breakups. After the game, Snodgrass picked up a scholarship offer from the Huskers.
Snodgrass plays a variety of positions for the Dukes, lining up at TE, RB, QB, WR and LB. On Friday on his unofficial visit to Nebraska for the Iowa game, Snodgrass verbally committed to the team. He clearly has a lot of versatility but I see him as a 3-4 outside lineback in college.
Snodgrass becomes the second member of the 2019 class, joining defensive end Garrett Nelson from Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
