Gretna quarterback Zane Flores has committed to Oklahoma State. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound junior announced his commitment via twitter on Sunday.
“I really think they bring a lot to the table for me. The coaches are all great people and they have created a winning program over there. The offensive style will be fun to play in and I think I fit that style well,” Flores said of OSU. “You can really tell they love what they are doing.”
Flores’ recruitment has picked up steam in recent months. OSU, Kansas State, Indiana, Missouri, Oregon State, Pittsburgh and Washington are the power five schools to offer scholarships in recent weeks. Rated as the No. 29 quarterback nationally by 247Sports, an unofficial visit March 26 and official visit to Stillwater on Easter weekend was all the gunslinger needed to see.
“Both times I went there I felt super comfortable there (OSU),” he said. “It really had the home feel. The coaches, the players and the community, everything just felt right.
In November, Flores led the Dragons (12-1) to a Class A State Championship passing for 2,885 yards, 28 touchdowns and just over a 70% completion percentage during his junior season.
Flores becomes the second Nebraskan to be a Power Five scholarship quarterback since Alan Evridge (Papillion-La Vista, 2005) joining Kearney Catholic’s Heinrich Haarberg (Kearney Catholic, 2021).
