Teddy Prochazka

Teddy Prochazka is a four-star prospect ranked as the No. 199 player nationally, according to the 247Sports composite.

LINCOLN — Elkhorn South junior lineman Teddy Prochazka committed to Nebraska on Saturday.

The 6-foot-8 tackle attended Nebraska’s game against Ohio State and has been a frequent visitor to campus during the last year.

“It felt right,” Prochazka said. “I really didn’t see myself leaving this place.”

Prochazka informed the Husker coaching staff of his decision during pregame warmups.

“They all had a very excited reaction,” Prochazka said. “They were all really happy to hear the news.”

Prochazka said the “energy was amazing” on the field before the game. And he wasn’t discouraged by the Huskers’ 48-7 loss to Ohio State.

“Well, we all know that this is a work in progress,” Prochazka said. “And we just need to be ready to work when we get there.”

Prochazka said Northwestern and Kansas State were the other two schools in his top three. He also had scholarship offers from Arizona State, Iowa State, Kansas, Michigan and Minnesota.

Prochazka is a four-star prospect, according to the 247Sports composite, ranked as the No. 199 player nationally and the No. 26 offensive tackle. He’s No. 2 in the NebHSRecruiting rankings for 2021 behind Omaha Westside’s Avante Dickerson.

Prochazka is the second commit for Nebraska’s 2021 recruiting class, joining defensive end RJ Sorensen of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Prochazka is NU’s first in-state commit for 2021. He was the first in-state junior to receive a scholarship offer, which came in October 2018. Since then, the Huskers have offered Dickerson and Omaha Creighton Prep’s AJ Rollins. NU currently has one in-state commit for the 2020 class, Bellevue West receiver Zavier Betts.
