2016 Tight End Jack Stoll chooses the Big Ten Conference.
KUSA – Regis Jesuit tight end Jack Stoll didn’t want any distractions during his senior season with the Raiders. Stoll wants to focus on school and football. That’s why he announced his college commitment in June, months before the 2015 season. On Wednesday, the 6-foot-5, 225 pound tight end tweeted out, “Excited and proud to announce that I have committed to the University of Nebraska!”
Stoll told 9News that he knew Nebraska was the right place for him. “I absolutely love the coaches and the players. It’s a great college town and the fans are extremely loyal,” Stoll said.
He said his top three choices were Nebraska, Texas and Colorado. The Cornhuskers edged the rest because of how often their offense utilizes its tight ends. “Nebraska uses tight ends in progression 90 percent of the time and they line up two tight ends 60 percent of the time. I want to be a part of that type of offense,” said Stoll.
Jack also told 9News that he knows he wants to get better and the Cornhuskers have the right formula. Stoll said Nebraska’s Tight Ends Coach Tavita Thompson is a guy he wants to play for. “After watching film with Coach Thompson, I want to learn the right technique. He’s the guy I want to learn from,” explained Stoll.
Before he gets too excited about playing at the next level, Stoll knows there’s business to take care of this upcoming season. “Our team goal is to win a state championship. We don’t have many returning starters, but we have the talent,” Stoll explained. As for his personal goal this season? “I just want to be the best receiver and blocker in the state,” Stoll said with confidence.
Stoll had 11 offers from across the nation including Air Force, Colorado, Colorado State, Idaho State, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, UNLV, Virginia and Wyoming.
