He visited the Nebraska Cornhuskers time after time. To make sure that he knew what he was getting into. And, in the end, that's where he committed to.

Washington High School Offensive Tackle Matt Farniok, who hails from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, committed to Nebraska with a in-home visit on Wednesday night.

Farniok, who is the #1 player in the state of South Dakota and the 24th best OL in the '16 composite class, was being pursued by Iowa, Michigan State and Michigan among other schools.

Farniok was worked on by both Mike Cavanaugh and Mike Riley throughout the recruiting process, and it paid off in the end. The many times that Farniok and his family visited Lincoln on their own dime, the message was always consistent for what they see Farniok at.

What sold Farniok is that he will have a chance to compete early for a starting role. Nebraska plans on going young on the OL next year, and Farniok is just as much of a candidate to be in the rotation.

With the commitment of Farniok, this brings the Nebraska class up to 28th in the 247 national ratings, with a movement up to 5th in the Big Ten Conference.
