Summary:A junior college transfer, Pribanic has opened some eyes this spring as Nebraska's Sunday starter. With a big leg kick, he's run his fastball up to 94 mph and shown the ability to throw an average changeup and slider. A strong competitor, he doesn't have much of a track record to go from, but if he pitches this well all season, that won't matter.
