Meet the players who plan to don Husker red in the coming years.
My school: York.
This week: Fourth-ranked York has advanced to the Class B state semifinals and will play at No. 2 Scottsbluff on Friday. Snodgrass has been limited, due to a high-ankle sprain, but plans to play. “Yeah, I’ll play, for sure,” he said. “I hope it holds up. I’m going to have to play through it. It’s not going to be easy, but I’m going to go out there and give it everything I have. It’s do or die.”
Positions: Quarterback and linebacker.
Rankings: Rivals.com ranks Snodgrass as a three-star prospect. He’s the No. 4-ranked player in the state, according to Rivals.
Other sports: As a junior he played on state-championship teams in football and basketball and qualified for the state track meet in the discus.
The college life
Projected position at NU: Linebacker.
First contact with the new Nebraska coaching staff: “Coach (Scott) Frost called me a couple of weeks after he got the job and just told me that I still have a scholarship, and that they want me to come there. It was pretty cool, just talking to Coach Frost. He’s already a legend at Nebraska, and it was cool to have that conversation with him. And it was exciting just because of the uncertainty of the new staff.”
Date committed: Nov. 24, 2017.
If I wrote my recruiting profile
Weight: 220 pounds.
Mel Kiper would say: “Versatile. Smart. Can do a lot of different things, and learn pretty fast.”
On the most interesting thing about watching a Nebraska football practice last spring: “Just how good the players are, and kind of comparing myself to them a little bit. Obviously they got a couple of years on me, but just seeing what type of stuff I could be doing in the future.”
On his favorite play that his high school team runs: “Probably a quarterback run, like a veer option, or maybe we got this one quarterback counter that works pretty much every time, and I got two of my best offensive linemen, Max Kohmetscher and Douglas Lazo, leading up into the hole, so that’s a fun one I like.”
On his favorite all-time Husker: “(Ndamukong) Suh. That’s a pretty easy one. I know there has been some pretty good ones, but I never really got to see any of them play. Just that defense a few years ago with Suh was a really fun group to watch, and Suh was so dominant."
