Nebraska Football: Transfer Commit from the University of Florida - Former Starting Offensive Guard

NCAA Football: Northern Illinois at Nebraska Dylan Widger-USA TODAY Sports

But does he play o-line?

Well in this case, yes, yes he does.

This would be talking about new transfer commit Micah Mazzccua who announced on Wednesday that he intends to spend his last season at Nebraska.

Mazzccua is not new to Matt Rhule as Rhule recruited the interior offensive lineman to Baylor. In fact, Nebraska was in the running for him last season but Mazzccua ended up choosing Florida over the Huskers.

This is a great pickup as Mazzccua has a ton of experience. From the Florida Gator’s website it says that he started 11 of the 12 games last season and started 10 games at Baylor. In 2021, he played in nine games for Baylor.

So he has experience that will be needed on the Nebraska offensive line in 2024.

It also appears that he’s willing to stand up for himself and his teammates as he showed against Tennessee last season.

Here is the full description of his 2023 from the Florida Gator’s site:

2023: Started at right guard in 11 of 12 games while totaling 743 snaps on the Gators offensive line… Started his eighth-straight contest in Week 13 vs. Florida State (Nov. 25)… Returned to the starting offensive line in Week 5 at Kentucky after a one-week absence… Earned the start in Week 3 vs. No. 11 Tennessee and in Week 2 against McNeese (Sept. 9)… Started at right guard in Week 1 at No. 14 Utah (Aug. 31).

I have not looked into it but I assume the “one-week absence” which happened after the Tennessee game might have been the result of the video above.
