Hannon checks out Lincoln, again

Just a few short weeks ago Zach Hannon was checking out Lincoln for the first time. The standout offensive lineman from Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst was in Lincoln again, but this time he didn't travel alone. Who was with Hannon today?

Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst is traditionally a powerhouse in the Kansas City metro area which means that they produce a lot of DI talent too. This year there is Zach Hannon, a 6-foot-4.5 and 292-pound offensive lineman. Hannon was in Lincoln for the second time in three weeks today.

"I was there again today," Hannon said. "I am just leaving now. I just wanted to check out practice and talk with the coaches again.

"I liked practice a lot. It was high energy and high tempo. There was a lot of aggressiveness coming from the offensive and defensive line. It was just very organized. I liked it a lot."

Hannon was also able to talk to some players in Lincoln today. He said that was important for him to do. He wanted to see what the connection was like between the players and the coaches.

"I got a chance to talk to some of the players. They all spoke very highly of the coaches which I think is very important. They have a lot of respect for the coaches.

"I got to sit in on a meeting. I got a chance to see the style of offense which is a no-huddle, high tempo style of offense. There are some things that we do at Rockhurst besides the no-huddle. It's pretty similar."

Nebraska signee Mike Rose, from Rockhurst, was key to Nebraska's 2012 recruiting class because of how active he was with the other recruits. Rose was there today with Hannon along with three other players on the Rockhurst team.

"I was up there with Michael Rose, Tony Lashley, Brandon Jones and Bronson Jones. Tony is a linebacker and the twins are cornerbacks, all class of 2013."

The visit to Lincoln might be the last trip that Hannon makes in a while. He has the ACT this weekend and it's just getting to be that time of the year. He says that there might be a trip in store for him in May possibly.

"I have the ACT on Saturday. I think that this is the last week that I have to get out until summer. I went to Oklahoma this past Friday. I might have some time in May and I might make it down to Arkansas."
