Overland Park (Kan.) St. Thomas Aquinas inside linebacker Lance Brandenburgh has been one of Nebraska’s earliest commitments and now with the head coaching situation open in Lincoln could things get interesting for him?
“We were sitting in the car listening to the press conference today,” Brandenburgh’s father, Chuck, said. “We thought after winning the game against Colorado he would have probably another year at least, but I guess not.”
Brandenburgh looks, though, to be sticking with his Nebraska commitment, but a lot will depend on who gets hired.
“It happened so fast, that we’ve hardly had time to even react to it,” his father said. “I don’t think anything will change as to where he wants to go, but I think it’ll still depend on who they get as head coach.
“The hard part is that you spend a lot of time getting to know these coaches through the recruiting process. Coach Downing was the one that recruited Lance and it was his relationship with Lance and the other coaches that helped him make a decision.”
Brandenburgh still is getting calls from UCLA and mail from Kansas and Missouri. At this point, only Nebraska was expected to get an official visit.
“I guess we’ll just have to see what happens,” his father said.
Brandenburgh is a three-star prospect and ranked as the nation's No. 24 inside linebacker by Rivals.com
