WIth offensive tackle being a big need for Nebraska, the Huskers got a huge commitment on Wednesday night, when they picked up Sioux Falls (S.D) Washington offensive lineman Matt Farniok. The third brother to play Division 1 football, Matt picked Nebraska over offers from Iowa, Florida State and Michigan State.
Matt's mother, Christine, who's been through the recruiting process before with her other two sons, hit up Scout.com's Derek Young with a statement about the commitment.
"Matt is so appreciative of everyone that recruited him and this decision came from lots of thought and sleepless nights," said Christine Farniok."It's such a relief to see him relaxed and smiling again. Bottom line is, he wouldn't have made a bad choice in any of the schools he was down to. I'm so proud of all his hard work to get him to this place and now he deserves to enjoy being a Husker."
Scout.com national recruiting Greg Powers says Nebraska is getting a good one.
"Farniok is abusing players at times on his tape," said 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."
While they could not mention him by name, the Nebraska coaching staff showed their excitment regarding the commitment on Twitter.
More to come.
