Buzzell on Nebraska
“I was really attracted to the high level of soccer and Nebraska’s reputation for developing their players. I was amazed by their facilities and the commitment of the support staff. Academically, the school has everything I’m looking for and with the time I spent with the team, I knew it was right for me.”
