Free State lineman Turner Corcoran commits to Nebraska

Free State offensive lineman Turner Corcoran gives a flying bump to assistant coach Taylor Stuart after a touchdown against Olathe East during the first quarter on Friday, Sept. 7, 2018 at Free State High School.

Free State senior Turner Corcoran has made a decision.

The four-star offensive tackle, who had double-digit scholarships offers from Power Five programs, announced via Twitter that he was verbally committed to the University of Nebraska. Corcoran was actually in Lincoln, Nebraska this weekend, attending the Huskers’ Spring Game.

“Feeling is indescribable honestly, but it was a gut feeling and I know that it is going to pay off in the end,” Corcoran told the Journal-World. “I was born to play ball at Nebraska.”

Corcoran, a 6-foot-6, 270-pound standout, chose Nebraska over 15 other major programs, including Kansas and Kansas State. According to Rivals, Corcoran is the top-ranked player in the state and is the No. 8 offensive tackle in the nation. He is also ranked No. 50 overall in the Class of 2020.

This past season, Corcoran helped the Firebirds post a 10-1 record en route to the program’s seventh consecutive trip to the 6A quarterfinals.
