Klachko to Nebraska

| 5 Comments | No TrackBacks

Ryan Klachko, a 6-4, 290-pound offensive lineman from Springfield Sacred Heart-Griffin, has made an oral commitment to Nebraska. Klachko is the top-rated offensive lineman in Illinois and the No. 2 prospect behind running back Rodney Coe of Edwardsville.

Klachko, another blue-chip prospect produced by veteran coach Ken Leonard, was recruited by former Southern Illinois coach Shawn Watson, now offensive coordinator at Nebraska. He is the best player that Nebraska has recruited out of the Chicago area since Nate Turner of Mount Carmel.

Thanks for the news Tom, but uh, since when is Springfield part of the Chicago area? The two cities are nearly two hundred miles apart. Sheesh.

Hey Tom,

How about QB Joe Ganz from Stagg High School? Lead them to an Gator Bowl victory and was MVP of teh game? Better than Nate Turner?

Watson isn't the O line coach. He's the Offensive Coordinator. I agree about Ganz. He was a great player with too short an opportunity. Glad to get back in Illinois in this way.

How about Johnny Mitchell TE, Simeon was far better than Ganz or Turner and he was a first round draft pick in 92 for Dallas.

You are way off base. Eddie Stewart from Mt.Carmel (1989) was captain of their national championship team and was voted to their all decade team.
