The Connecticut Huskies picked up their first commitment for the Class of 2011 in Lake Braddock…
Instant Fit for Nebrich
Michael Nebrich, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound signal caller from Lake Braddock Secondary School gave his verbal commitment to Connecticut earlier in June and Scout.com caught up with him this week to find out what the draw was as he also held written offers from five other programs. "I took my trip up there the first week of June and one of the big things I really wanted from my head coach was someone that treated his players like family and that's what Coach (Randy) Edsall does," Nebrich stated. "Then I got to go see the facilities which are really nice and took a walk around the campus and just realized that I could definitely see myself playing there, so it was immediately a very good fit." "I wanted a rural community and right when I got on campus I got the feeling that Connecticut was pretty much it for me," Nebrich added. "Both of my parents came with me on that visit and they loved it up there. They took a lot of time talking with Coach (Joe) Moorhead who they liked a lot and then spoke with Coach Edsall as well and were just really impressed with both coaches." "Another thing that weighed into my decision was playing time and right now they have a senior and a junior, so I plan on red-shirting my freshman year and then competing for the starting job after that," Nebrich mentioned. "Coach Moorhead and I broke down a lot of the game film and I think I'll have a lot of fun playing in that offense because it really fits the way I play. They do a little bit of everything and are in the gun about 80-percent of the time which I'm already very comfortable with and the quarterback is really in control of the offense which I'm used to. I also think my mobility will help me out in that offense as well." As a junior, Nebrich completed 239 of 448 passes for 3290 yards and 22 touchdowns to 21 interceptions. He also carried the ball 265 times for 1231 times. He was named first team All-District and All-Region and second-team All-Metro and All-State. He was also the Patriot District and Northern Region Player of the Year.
