"It feels good to say," Hannon said. "It feels good to hear. I am very happy and excited about my decision to go to the University of Nebraska."
This was a tough decision for Hannon. At one time it was down to Nebraska and Arkansas, but Missouri re-entered the picture. Hannon's decision today to go with Nebraska was all about the best opportunity and fit for him academically as well as athletically.
"It was everything. Nebraska gave me the all in one. They offered me great academics, great coaches, a great football program and just the best opportunity for me. It was the best fit."
Hannon will be following Kansas City Rockhurst linebacker and 2012 Nebraska signee Michael Rose to Nebraska. Hannon said that he had already spoken with Rose and it was clear that Rose was excited about Hannon's decision.
"You know Mike so when I called him and told him he was excited. He started screaming because he was so excited that I decided to commit to Nebraska."
One of the things that Nebraska fans have started to ask about is the possibility of official visits by Hannon. Hannon said that he hasn't discussed anything about official visits with Nebraska because of his excitement to finally commit.
"I didn't even talk about that with Nebraska. I was just so excited to make my decision that as of right now it's not something that I am really considering. I am happy to be a Husker."
