'15 OL checks out Nebraska practice

Bowl game practices are a great opportunity for coaches to get some area recruits to come by. Nebraska had one of the better junior offensive lineman in Jacksonville (Flor.) in attendance on Monday.

Jacksonville (Flor.) Bishop Kenny junior Tyler Jordan is a 2015 recruit to keep an eye on. The 6-foot-4 and 270-pound offensive tackle headed over to see Nebraska at one of their Gator Bowl game practices earlier today.

"I had gotten a couple of pieces of mail from Nebraska," Jordan said. "I got an email from Coach John Garrison last night though. He asked me if I wanted to come up to their practice today and hang out."

The interest from Nebraska towards Jordan might be picking up a bit and you could say the same about Jordan towards Nebraska. The standout junior saw a similar style of offense that the Huskers run compared to what his high school runs.

"I couldn't talk with the staff because of the dead period, but I did check out the practice and got a feel for the offense. I liked their offense. We run a similar offense.

"We are very up-tempo and like to spread out defenses. I play offensive tackle, but I am not 6-foot-6 or 6-foot-7. I am 6-foot-4, but I finish every block and I am pretty good in pass protection."

There are two offers already on the table for Jordan. He says that he's interested to see how things might progress now with the Cornhuskers.

"I have two offers as of right now," Jordan said. "I have offers from North Carolina and Bucknell already. I don't have any plans to hit any combines, but I will visit North Carolina in February. I am interested to see what happens with this new interest from Nebraska."
