Nebraska will visit OT Matt Farniok again this week

Nebraska might be using a little strategy when it comes to head coach Mike Riley's visit for South Dakota offensive lineman Matt Farniok.

A day after visiting Michigan State over the weekend, Washington high school (SD) three-star offensive tackle Matt Farniok will host the Spartans in his home on Monday. Farniok is deciding between Nebraska, Iowa and Michigan State in the recruiting process. 

With trips to Lincoln and East Lansing already in the books, Farniok will travel to Iowa City this weekend. It won't happen before the Nebraska coaching staff gets a chance to stop in to see the senior sometime later this week. 

"I don't believe Coach Riley will be with them," said Christine Farniok, Matt's mother. "I think he is waiting to be one of the last coaches to stop by." 

The Army All-American has visited Nebraska more than any other school in the recruiting process. Farniok has already eliminted a handful of schools which included: Penn State, Florida State, NC State, Missouri Wisconsin, Michigan and Cal. 

"Farniok is abusing players at times on his tape," said Scout.com national recruiting analyst Greg Powers. "He is bigger and stronger than much of the competition and he asserts himself as the aggressor on most snaps. He is a good drive blocker with plus size and shows an ability to get on the second level and secure blocks. Level of competition will be an adjustment for him as he transitions to the next level."
