Teddy Prochazka was slowed early in the 2023 season while rehabbing from an injury, but he played in each of the final 10 games with six starts, including starting the final five games at left tackle. Prochazka made his season debut against Northern Illinois. He started his first game of the season at Illinois, when Nebraska opened with six offensive linemen. The play of Prochazka helped Nebraska post the No. 2 rushing offense in the Big Ten.
Prochazka started the first three games at left tackle in 2022. He suffered an injury in the Georgia Southern game that kept him out for the rest of the season.
Prochazka played in five games in 2021 with two starts before suffering a season-ending injury. He was just the 16th true freshman offensive lineman to play in a game in Nebraska history. Prochazka earned the start at left tackle against Northwestern, when Nebraska rushed for 427 yards and gained 657 total yards. With his start, Prochazka became only the second true freshman in the modern era of Nebraska football to start a game at left tackle. Overall, he became just the seventh true freshman offensive lineman to start a game in the modern era of Nebraska football. Prochazka also started the next contest at left tackle against No. 9 Michigan, but he suffered a season-ending injury in that game.
Before Nebraska (Elkhorn South HS)
One of the top 75 prospects in the country, Prochazka was a 2020 Sports Illustrated All-America candidate. Prochazka joined the Huskers as an offensive lineman after he was a two-way lineman for Elkhorn South High School. Prochazka enrolled at Nebraska in January.
Prochazka was a three-year starter on offense and two-year starter on defense. As a senior, he helped Elkhorn South to a state runner-up finish when he was named to the Omaha World-Herald All-Nebraska and Lincoln Journal Star Super-State first teams. Prochazka was one of the most decorated Nebraska high school players during his career, as he was also an All-Nebraska first-team selection in 2019, one of only five juniors to make the team. He was also named a first-team Super-State selection by the Lincoln Journal Star as a junior and was a second-team Super-State pick as a sophomore.
Prochazka was ranked among the nation’s top 75 recruits by Rivals, which regarded him as the 11th-best offensive tackle in the country and the No. 73 player overall. The 247Sports Composite rankings listed Prochazka among the nation’s top 250 overall prospects and top 20 offensive tackles. Prochazka had numerous offers and chose Nebraska over Arizona State, Iowa and Michigan among many others.
