Mitchell senior running back Ricky Trinidad had hoped to pick up a scholarship offer this weekend on his official visit to the University of Nebraska-Kearney.

So, when the Division II Lopers pulled the trigger, Trinidad decided to go ahead and give a verbal commitment according to a voicemail message left by former Mitchell head coach Brian Wachtel.

Trinidad rushed for 609 yards as a senior, despite carrying the ball only 30 times through three games before suffering a season-ending ACL tear. Trinidad had offers from I-AA schools Georgia Southern and Youngstown State, but both schools eventually pulled their offers after he was injured.

Trinidad gained 1,389 yards and scored 16 touchdowns as a junior and was named to the St. Petersburg Times' all-North Suncoast first team.

Nebraska-Kearney plays in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in Division II.
