Huskers impress Hannon

Zach Hannon was in Bentonville (Ark.) last night for a high school football game and was in Lincoln (Nebr.) today for his second college football game that he's ever seen and it was a good one. The Nebraska commitment came away very impressed with the output of the Cornhusker offense and sees a lot of reasons why he should transition easily to the college game.

Zach Hannon has put on some miles this weekend. The 6-foot-4.5 and 292-pound offensive lineman from Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst is the No. 61 offensive tackle in the nation according to Scout.com and he was in Lincoln today for the Nebraska game.

"It was great," Hannon said. "It was an awesome, awesome experience. I am not going to lie, it was a little bit hot, but that wasn't a huge deal."

Hannon, being an offensive line recruit and all, came away very impressed with the 49 point effort by Nebraska's offense. Hannon draws some parallels between the offensive system that he runs now in high school with the offense that he will run in college.

"They looked great from the start. Nebraska on offense looks like a bigger, better Rockhurst I think. It seems exactly like what we run.

"I think because of that I really feel like I fit in the offense and with the offensive line. They pulled a lot today and were aggressive. It was good to see. They looked quick."

Hannon says that the optimism is there among all of the 2013 recruits when it comes to their class and playing for championships. He says that there is a quiet confidence among all of the recruits.

"I get the vibe that the team is young and that there is a good group of young players already on the team and that with our class we should be playing for those conference and national championships.

"Hanging out with Josh Banderas and Christian Lacouture all day it's kind of become that unspoken thing between all of us. That this is really coming together and that we are in a position to play for national championships."

Hannon has been active with helping Nebraska recruit other players into the 2013 class. Today he got a great chance to talk to the two official visitors and he felt like the visits were going good for both of them.

"I spoke to the two official visitors a lot today. I thought that both were loving it. Corey Clement said it was down to Wisconsin, Pittsburgh and Nebraska. He was really feeling good about Nebraska. Josh was in his ear all day about why to come to Lincoln.

"The defensive tackle, Kyle Shortridge, he was having a good visit and was really enjoying himself too. I think that it was really a good visit for both of them."

The Huskers are off to UCLA next weekend and Hannon is taking his official visit for the Big Ten opener in Lincoln for Nebraska against Wisconsin. He says that he would like to make it back before his official visit weekend though too.

"I am taking my official visit for the Wisconsin game, but I think that we would like to make it back before that."
