Vince Genatone Commits To Nebraska

After a pit stop at Montana, Vince Genatone is the latest in-state player to find a home at Nebraska. 

Genatone, a three-sport star at North Platte in the 2022 class, spent his first two seasons at Montana. He entered the transfer portal earlier this year after his redshirt freshman season. 

On Tuesday, he committed to the Huskers as a preferred walk-on. 

“Coach Rhule and his staff are very well known for developing their players and that is what I am looking for, is to be developed,” Genatone told Hail Varsity. “Where better than Nebraska?” 

At 6-foot-1, and 220 pounds, he will have three seasons of eligibility remaining when he gets to Lincoln. 

A quick trip from North Platte to Lincoln to visit campus and meet the coaching staff on Tuesday sealed the commitment. 

“They have a very welcoming staff,” Genatone said. “I got to watch practice today and toured all of the facilities. All of the coaches treated me like I was already a part of the family.”

Genatone starred at both running back and linebacker at North Platte and was also a stand-out wrestler and track athlete. He ran the ball 100 times for 911 yards and 13 touchdowns and was among the state’s leader in tackles with 136 including 14.5 for loss (3.5 sacks) as a senior, guiding the Bulldogs to a 7-4 record and state tournament appearance.
