“I am excited to announce my commitment to the University of Tulsa,” Farniok wrote. “#ReignCane”
Coming out of high school in 2018, Farniok was a three-star prospect and the No. 864 prospect in the country by 247Sports. He was the No. 15 center in the nation, and the No. 1 prospect from the state of South Dakota.

Despite spending three years at Nebraska, Farniok rarely saw the field for Scott Frost. He has been a reserve center for the last two years, appearing in a grand total of four games as backup to Cameron Jurgens. He appeared in just one game for the Huskers in 2020.
For Tulsa, it’s the addition of a veteran player to a team that defied expectations and made the AAC title game in 2020. But for Nebraska, it’s another frustrating departure for a team trying to get some consistency anywhere.
With Farniok leaving, Nebraska has now lost five offensive linemen from their 2020 roster. Seniors Brenden Jaimes and Matt Farniok – Will’s brother – are both off to the NFL, while Boe Wilson and Matthew Anderson have transferred to Western Kentucky and Louisiana respectively.
Who else will leave Nebraska this coming offseason?
