Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst offensive tackle Zach Hannon is working hard this summer. Hannon said that the whole team of Rockhurst is putting in work this summer to get ready for the fall. Today was weightlifting followed by a practice.
"Yeah we did have to work out this morning," Hannon said. "We had out 1,000-pound club weight lifting and then we practices. I bench 335, squat 450 and dead lift 500, but I could do 600 I think if I really push it."
The summer is winding down and with two a days around the corner a decision looms for Hannon. He's narrowed it down to two and says that a decision could come this week or next week. He just knows that it will be by the end of the month.
"Yeah, I could decide this week or next week. I am down to Arkansas and Nebraska. Those two schools are where I felt the most at home while I have been there. I am thinking that it will be before August. That should be the latest."
Hannon on Arkansas:
"It's the tradition first of all. They are a team on the rise and in the SEC. They have great coaches and good relationships with their players. I like the town of Fayetteville."
Hannon on Nebraska:
"Coach Bo Pelini and I have a great relationship. I also like both of their offensive line coaches and I have good relationships with both of them. It's kind of the same things as Arkansas."
Nebraska has a bit of an ace in the hole. Former Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst linebacker Michael Rose is a close friend to Hannon. Since leaving for Lincoln Rose has continued to recruit Hannon. "He's still recruiting me. He's loving it in Lincoln. I pretty much talk to him every week still since he left for Nebraska."
