"I got the offer to walk-on when I was in Lincoln for the visit," Boryca said. "They told us about the program that weekend and had some of the former walk-ons come in and talk to us.
There were some schools keeping tabs on Boryca throughout the process, some extended offers, but the Nebraska offer won out. Some schools were eyeing Boryca as a possible defensive lineman.
"I was in contact with a lot of schools through the process. A few of the schools offered me. Some of the schools actually liked me as a defensive end in college because my family has history of growing late."
The opportunity, the friends and family in Lincoln really added up to Boryca being a Husker. He also liked the atmosphere on gameday Saturdays and the support for athletes was second to none for him.
"This is a once in a lifetime chance for me," Boryca said. "I have a lot of friends and family there in Lincoln. The atmosphere there on gameday is great. The academic side is incredible."
Nebraska is looking at Boryca as a possible middle linebacker right now. He says that he's a natural at the position -- has a feel for it -- and thinks that his wrestling background helps him out making the big hit.
"They like me as a MIKE probably. I think that I can read the play well and it's natural for me to know where the ball is. I think that being a wrestler you try to make the big play and I love hitting the ball carrier."
