It has been 445 days since the Elkhorn South offensive tackle committed to Nebraska. Prochazka (6-8, 300) was the first commit for Nebraska’s 2021 class last year and has been a rock-solid member of the class since then. When Nebraska landed his commitment, Prochazka had offers from Arizona State, Michigan, Northwestern, Kansas, Kansas State, Minnesota. His heart was always in Nebraska though.
It’s been something to watch Prochazka’s growth over the last few years. I’ve watched him play since his sophomore year of high school. It feels like each time I see him, he’s put on more muscle. That’s a testament to his hard work on and off the field.
When moving up to the college ranks Prochazka will benefit from being able to focus solely on playing offensive line. He stars on both sides of the ball in high school, so it can be hard sometimes to see his full dominance. Outside of his sheer size, which can’t be missed, it’s rare for a lineman with his size to be able to pull like he can. The Huskers ask their offensive linemen to pull a lot so he’ll be right at home there.
Prochazka was a can’t miss prospect in the state this cycle. The Huskers had to have him in the class and did well to gain his commitment so early. He’s one of the tone-setters for the class who has played a big role in helping to peer recruit.
