“This staff believes in me and constantly reassured me that this could be my home. I’m truly happy to be apart of this program and the chance to play for coach Raiola and coach Rhule. I also plan on continuing my passion to help the community and give back to the fans during my time at UNL.”

Knaak chose Nebraska over other offers that he publicized over social media such as Kentucky, Buffalo, UMass, Appalachian State, Old Dominion, Hawaii, Liberty, Utah State, Central Michigan, Nevada, and others.

Knaak says that he plans to study engineering at Nebraska.
