Life in the Red: Elkhorn South 2021 OT Prochazka earns lofty rating

Huskers Football Pipeline Camp, 6.15

Elkhorn South's Teddy Prochazka (center left) runs June 15 during the Husker football Pipeline Camp at Memorial Stadium.

Teddy Prochazka has already seen his recruitment take off. He's already impressed college coaches at camps and workouts. He's already coveted thanks to his combination of athleticism and a massive 6-foot-9, 280-pound frame. 

Now he's got a rating to back up the interest. 

Prochazka, the 2021 tackle from Elkhorn South, checked in as the No. 43 player overall in the country in the first 2021 Rivals 100 rankings, which were released on Tuesday. That spot makes him the No. 8-ranked offensive tackle in the class nationally. 

Prochazka picked up a scholarship offer from Nebraska last fall and since has added offers from Northwestern, Michigan, Minnesota and several others. Most recently, he picked up an Arizona State offer after the Sun Devils watched him work at Saturday's national "Pipeline" lineman camp at Memorial Stadium. 

Prochazka is one of two in-state players for 2021 already highly coveted around the country. The other is defensive back Avante Dickerson (Omaha Westside), who did not crack the initial Rivals 100 rankings but is considered the No. 50 player overall and the No. 3 cornerback in the nation by 247Sports. 

Dickerson has offers from Nebraska, Ohio State and LSU among many others.
