Chase Urbach, a 2015 long snapper, announced on March 18 that he has committed to the Huskers as a preferred walk-on.
Urbach, out of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, was rated a 4.5-star prospect according to Chris Rubio of Rubio Long Snapping, the same program that produced 2015 scholarship signee Jordan Ober as well as 2013 Nebraska commit Gabe Miller.
Rubio was a long snapper at UCLA and runs 35 to 40 camps around the country each year. When coaches want a long snapper, Rubio said, they call him, since it’s his drills that developed those snappers. Rubio estimated Oregon State took five of his long snappers while special teams coordinator Bruce Read was in Corvallis, and Read called Rubio once he moved to Nebraska to inquire about prospects.
As for scholarship distribution, Mike Riley has previously said the Huskers will keep a long snapper on scholarship. But with Miller hurt in 2014 and not likely to return, Ober remained NU's only scholarship long snapper.
Here's Urbach's Twitter post announcing his decision:
These are the players who built Nebraska football.
