Huskers Add Guard to Class of 2013
Kansas City guard prospect 2013 Zach Hannon chose Nebraska this week over a number of other schools including Arkansas, Missouri, Colorado, Illinois, Northwestern, and a number of other schools. Hannon reportedly carries a 3.1 GPA, which should mean that qualifying academically should not be an issue. He's the third offensive line commit for the upcoming recruiting class, which is important since the class of 2012 had only two offensive linemen.
Hannon is a three-star prospect according to Rivals.com, ranking as the eighteenth best guard in the country. With the departure of Ryan Klachko, recruiting lineman has become that much more important. Hannon could be called on to play fairly early, maybe earning a two-deep spot as a redshirt freshman or sophomore.
At 6'5" and 295 lbs., he's already got the size to play at the college level. More work on technique, strength, speed, and agility will give him the tools to be effective in the Big Ten. He is the thirteenth member of the upcoming recruiting class. He is the second recruit from Rockhurst high school in Missouri in as many years.
