When Will Farniok verbally committed to Nebraska on April 8, he knew it was time. The Huskers were always at the top of his list when other schools called, which is why he decided to make his announcement when he did. One week later, he was on the sidelines at Memorial Stadium taking it all in but this time as a commit.

His brother Matt is a current redshirt freshman at Nebraska, so Farniok is very familiar with the Huskers. While he also had two older brothers play at both Iowa State and Oklahoma, Nebraska was the place for him. His family agreed.

Farniok spoke with Hail Varsity about his decision to pick Nebraska, his spring game visit and more.

Q: How was your spring game visit as a commit?

WF: It was different coming back as a commit. I was more focused on talking to all of the other guys and getting there here, and really just moving around. It was cool being a commit.

Q: You originally weren’t sure when you’d commit. What changed your mind?

WF: I just felt like it was time and I felt like when other schools contacted me, Nebraska was where I wanted to go no matter what. It just felt like Nebraska was the best.

Q: Did your older brothers try to talk you into Iowa State or Oklahoma instead?


WF: They all encouraged [Nebraska] because they all love the coaches here. They all thought it was awesome and think it’s a great school and will do great things.

Q: Will there be a game where the whole family will be in Memorial Stadium?

WF: It’d be sweet. Hopefully. I hope it all works out [for that to happen].

Q: What did you think of the fans at the spring game?

WF: It’s crazy, especially because it’s just a practice. It’s insane. The fan base is insane here.

Q: What was your favorite part of the day?

WF: I’d say before the game, just talking to everyone and just watching the game and hanging out. It was pretty fun.

Q: Will you be back for more visits this fall?


WF: I think so. I think I’ll be back quite a few times.

Q: Did Matt have any words for you after you committed?


WF: He said it was awesome. He’s really excited and he’s really happy for me to get here. It’ll be fun, that’s for sure.

Q: What do you think of your 2018 class so far?

WF: It’s going to be a good class. I’m excited about it. I think [the coaches] are doing a great job. I think it’s going to be awesome.

Q: Where do you fit personality-wise in your class?

WF: I like to be outgoing, having fun and doing whatever.

Q: Are all of your brothers as outgoing as you?

WF: I’d have to say we’re all pretty close together. We all like to have fun.

Q: You seem to smile more than Matt. Is that true?

WF: Oh, yeah. People say I smile a lot.

Q: What are you looking forward to now that you’re committed?


WF: I’d say my senior season and going back to the state championship is what we’re focusing on now. We have a good team now in high school. It’s going to be a good year.

Q: And what are you looking forward to as a Husker?


WF: I’d say the whole team and having fun with everyone. It’s going to be exciting.
