The Huskers are in Sioux Falls, S.D., on Wednesday, according to a tweet from personnel director Ryan Gunderson. The coaches are there to see prized offensive tackle target Matt Farniok.

Head coach Mike Riley, offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf and offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh are all expected to visit with Farniok and his family, according to Husker Online and Huskers Illustrated. This tweet from Gunderson confirms the coaches that made the trip.

And it appears the visit paid off. Farniok announced his commitment to Nebraska on Twitter Wednesday night. Iowa and Michigan State were his other finalists.

Farniok took his official visit to Iowa this past weekend, and Michigan State hosted him the weekend prior. His official visit to Lincoln came in November for the Iowa game.

Farniok reportedly hosted assistant coaches from Michigan State earlier this week.

The Huskers first offered Farniok in January 2014, and he's one of two tackles left high on the Huskers' board. Alaric Jackson, who may visit NU this weekend, is still deciding between the Huskers and Hawkeyes. 

NU has three offensive linemen committed in the 2016 class. John Raridon and Boe Wilson project to the interior, and Bryan Brokop is the only tackle currently committed.

Farniok has said he expects to announce his decision by the end of this week.
