Big Red Today Omaha World-Herald

Nebraska picked up a commitment from another cornerback out of Hendrickson High in Plufgerville, Texas on Sunday, according to reports by multiple recruiting services.

Chance Waz, a 5-foot-11, 173-pounder, picked Nebraska after decommitting from Colorado last week. He is the teammate of current NU commit Trai Mosley. The two visited Nebraska together for the Michigan State game.

Waz finished with 116 tackles as a junior, winning all-district honors. This year Hendrickson finished 10-1, losing in the first round of the Texas 5A Division II state playoffs. Waz was defensive player of the year in his district, finishing with eight interceptions and three forced fumbles. He didn’t know his tackle total.

Waz said he switched from Colorado to Nebraska because the Huskers won more and had better tradition and fan intensity.

“Every team wants to win, but they’re serious at Nebraska,” Waz said. “I love the passion. It’s crazy up there.”

NU coaches, he said, project him to safety and perhaps nickel.

“The defense Nebraska runs, it’s a like a 4-2-5 and they play a lot of DBs,” Waz said. “There are a lot of opportunities for me play early if I earn it. They like how I can come down and make tackles, but they also like my coverage skills.”
