'15 MLB to see Nebraska

One of the nations top junior middle linebackers will be in Lincoln this weekend as Nebraska kicks off their out of conference schedule. What is he looking forward to see this weekend?

Lakeville (Minn.) South junior middle linebacker, Josh Corcoran, says that his team has had an impressive win and suffered a tough loss. There is a chance to redeem themselves this week and get back into the top 10.

"Our season is going good," Corcoran said. "We are 3-2 with a victory over Wyzata who was the No. 2 team in the state. We got up to No. 6, but lost this last weekend. We have a chance to move back up if we can beat Rosemont this weekend."

The standout junior is manning the middle for the South defense. He says that they run a couple of different bases defenses and he definitely has his preference to one based on some up front help covering up lineman.

"I am playing MIKE linebacker and we run both the 3-4 and the 4-3. I like the 4-3 better with the two defensive tackles covering up the offensive guards. I have 42 total tackles on the season and three tackles so far."

The four-star junior prospect will make a trip to a Big Ten school this weekend. Corcoran is headed to see Nebraska and this will be his first trip to see Lincoln.

"I am going to visit Nebraska this weekend," Corcoran said. "This will be my first trip to Lincoln. I am looking forward to seeing the fans and experience a sellout in Lincoln. I think that they have like 330 in a row. I am also looking forward to seeing their facilities."

Corcoran has seen Nebraska on television a couple of times this season to see what they do defensively. He says that he could see himself playing in Bo Pelini's defense.

"I have got a chance to watch a couple of their games this season. I think that I would fit in well with their defense. I could be a run-stopper and drop back into pass coverage as a linebacker there. I know that they have a couple of true freshman linebackers playing."

Corcoran sees a commitment to winning games when he sees true freshmen see the field. He knows that the Nebraska staff is not afraid to put their best players on the field.

"Seeing true freshman play shows me that they aren't scared of putting a young guy on the field. They want to play the best players that give them a chance to win games regardless of class."

As a sophomore, Corcoran had 62 solo tackles in nine games. He also had three sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
