Report: John Raridon still is all Huskers

The nation's No. 19 overall player in the 2016 class is still a Husker according to a recent report.

According to a report by the Des Moines Register, four-star 2016 Nebraska offensive line commit John Raridon is still committed to the program.

The junior has yet to meet new head coach Mike Riley, but will do so next weekend (Jan. 23) in Lincoln.

"As of now, I'm still staying with Nebraska," Raridon told the Des Moines Register. "I haven't met the new coach yet. I obviously have to do that before anything's final, but I think I'm pretty solid to Nebraska.

"I had an idea when I committed that something like that would happen before I got there," he said. "I tried to make my decision excluding the coaches."

Raridon is the nation’s No. 19 player according to and had offers from Iowa, Illinois, Iowa State, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin to go along with his scholarship nod from Nebraska. He currently ranks as the nation’s No. 2 guard.

The junior is the son of former Husker Scott Raridon, who was an All-American offensive lineman for Nebraska in 1983.

"I really don't think that it can get much better than at Nebraska,” said Raridon at the time of his commitment. “I would definitely be nice to have those types of facilities available as a player. I really like the weight room and the locker room the most."
