Young on Nebraska
“As soon as I got to Nebraska, I knew it was the place for me. Every single person in the program was so welcoming, and the overall culture was unlike that of any other school I visited. I truly believe Nebraska provides me with the best opportunity to achieve my goals as an athlete, student and person.”
