Farniok visits Nebraska for second time

Newly ranked four-star prospect Matt Farniok hit Big Red Weekend on Saturday. Come inside to get his thoughts.

After seeing Nebraska's magical Hail Mary catch against Northwestern in the fall, Washington high school (S.D.) offensive lineman Matt Farniok was back in Lincoln on Saturday for Big Red Weekend.

"I really got to see more of the facilities in depth and was able to talk to the players this time," said Farniok. "I spent a little more time with the coaches. They say it's a really big family at Nebraska."

Farniok reports that he hasn't really thought about his recruitment much in the recent months, but the 2016 prospect is on the verge of blowing up. Recently, the offensive tackle was rated a four-star prospect by Scout.com and ranked the No. 117 overall player in the Scout Top 300 for his class.

"Right now it's not about where I'm going to go, but when it comes down to it having as many options as I need," said Farniok, who has two brothers playing at BCS level schools. "They are helpful in it and want me to pick a school that works for me, not just the biggest."

During his visit, Farniok hung out with former high school teammate turned Husker Nate Gerry, who will contend in the fall for a starting safety spot.

Farniok says he will likely visit Minnesota later this summer. He would like to hit another Nebraska game this fall. He currently holds offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Washington State, and Minnesota to go along with his Nebraska scholarship nod.
