OT Joel Honigford Plans Nebraska Spring Visit

Sugarcreek (OH) Garaway high school offensive tackle Joel Honigford is planning a visit to Lincoln in the spring.

After receiving an offer Nebraska in December, Sugarcreek (OH) Garaway high school offensive tackle Joel Honigford says Nebraska is a player for his services.

“I haven’t really narrowed down where I want to go or anything, I’m just starting to do that, but Nebraska is definitely in the mix,” said Honigford. “Honestly, it’s a great atmosphere there from what I have heard. That plays a pretty big role.  I want to play in a place where the crowd goes crazy.

“I have talked with Coach Cavanaugh, I really like him and what he has going. I have done some research on him and it seems like he is a really great coach. So Cav is pretty intriguing as well.”

When looking at Nebraska’s offensive line scholarship chart, it features a really full group entering the 2017 season with 12 scholarship players. But, the group is also lacking offensive tackles.

“I want to play as early as possible, but if there is a school where I feel it fits me well and I have to wait a few years, that is fine as well,” said Honigford. “It’s just really up to the best fit, but I want to play early.”

Honigford’s most recent offer comes from Michigan State. In addition, schools like Illinois, Boston College, Duke, Kentucky, Pitt and Wake Forest have also offered.

The 2017 three-star prospect will visit Nebraska sometime later this spring for a practice reports the Ohio native.
