Just a few minutes before the Nebraska Cornhuskers were set to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes, the program landed a major commitment.

Four-star offensive lineman Teddy Prochazka took to Twitter at 7:23 p.m. ET - just seven minutes before kickoff - to announce his commitment to Nebraska.

The Nebraska native made Huskers' fans night with his announcement.

"...And a special thank you to my dad who has coached my in football and in life since day one. He has always been by my side, giving me advice, listening to my football stories, and traveling from school to school throughout this journey. With all that being said, I am very PROUD to announce my commitment to the University of Nebraska," Prochazka said in a statement.

Prochazka is the No. 2 player from the state of Nebraska and the No. 26 player at his position - offensive tackle.

He'll need to put some weight on heading into his collegiate career - he's just 250 pounds - but he'll have plenty of time for that. Oh, and he also comes in at 6-foot-8.

He's the No. 199 player from the 2021 class and exactly what Scott Frost and company need on the offensive line.

Nebraska just needs to pull off an upset win over Ohio State to cap this night off.
