Three-star offensive tackle Zach Hannon (Kansas City, Mo./Rockhurst) committed to Nebraska in August. He took his official visit to Lincoln, Neb., over the weekend and, with the help of a raucous crowd and a solid performance by his future college team, reconfirmed his loyalty to the Cornhuskers.
Hannon said he enjoyed the visit and cheered the Cornhuskers on in their 23-9 win against Michigan at Memorial Stadium, which kept their Big Ten Conference championship hopes alive. Hannon was one of several commits and targets in attendance.
“It was great just to see Nebraska come out with the victory,” Hannon said. “I enjoyed the camaraderie with the rest of the recruits. Plus, it was a great game.”
A 6-foot-5, 295-pound tackle, Hannon said he chatted throughout the visit with commits such as ESPN 300 dual-threat quarterback Johnny Stanton (Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif./Santa Margarita Catholic) and four-star outside linebacker Josh Banderas (Lincoln, Neb./Southwest). He also had a chance to further sell Nebraska to one of his closest friends -- ESPN 300 defensive end Jamone Boyd, who also made the trip to Lincoln.
“Jamone loved it. He really enjoyed the visit,” Hannon said. “I’ve already kind of seen everything, so there wasn’t really anything new. I just had a great time. It let me realize this was the right place for me.”
