JUCO offensive lineman Zach Ingram apparently liked what he saw in a recent visit to the Nebraska football program. The Butler County Community College player hit Lincoln earlier in the week and posted a picture of his visit on his official Twitter account, thanking the coaching staff for showing him a good time. While that kind of post normally wouldn't necessarily mean anything more than Ingram was being polite, the situation surrounding the junior college player seems to indicate the visit might have given the Cornhuskers the inside track on getting the talented prospect's commitment.

Nebraska football one of just a few FBS offers for Ingram

While Rivals.com has the offensive lineman ranked as one of the better junior college players in the country, Ingram isn't getting a ton of attention just yet. Along with the Huskers, the 4-star prospect has offers from Kansas and Kansas State. On the one hand, the player is from Kansas City, Missouri.

That could mean that the Cornhuskers have a rather big hill to climb, because they are going to need to overcome not one, but two teams which are closer to home. On the other, the Huskers are on the way up under head coach Scott Frost.

The new coaching staff has had good success getting junior college players into Lincoln.

The offensive line is a new found focus for the Cornhuskers

While Zach Ingram was on the radar in Memorial stadium before this weekend, the need for Nebraska to get impact offensive lineman only grew on Saturday. That is the day when 2017's starting center, Mike Decker announced he was quitting Football.

While Decker has spent the spring rehabbing from an injury dating back to last year, it was a safe bet he was the odds-on favorite to be the starting center this season as well.

With his departure, a thin position on the team gets a little bit thinner. Ingram might not be able to fill the hole that Decker was leaving, but he certainly would bring talent and a kind of veteran presence to what will be on the roster during the 2019 season.

While the Huskers have gotten great JUCO players like Greg Bell and Jaron Woodyard, they actually haven't had a ton of luck with Butler CC. Perhaps securing the commitment of a player the likes of Ingram would go a long way in making sure that they have better success moving forward. Even if it's a standalone achievement, it's clear the Nebraska Football team would love to be able to steal away Zach Ingram from two former Big 12 rivals.
