Jones describes Nebraska as "perfect fit"

After a visit to Nebraska over the weekend, it appears the Huskers are in the lead for Florida cornerback Chris Jones.

Sandalwood HS (FL) cornerback Chris Jones visited Nebraska over the weekend and don't be surprised if he's a future Husker down the road. The Purdue soft verbal rated his trip to Lincoln a "10" while talking with Big Red Report on Sunday afternoon.

"My overall impressions were it's a great school, great coaches all around, and was just a really good visit," said Jones. It's safe to say it's between them and Purdue now.

"It was a 10. The coaching and players are really what stood out the most to me. I feel like I could fit. It's the perfect fit. The defense is very aggressive and that's the type of cornerback I am."

So what's next for the Florida prep?

"I'm going to talk to my mom," said the corner. "Coach Bo said he was going to come to my house and talk with my mom and me tomorrow."

Jones is also the first defensive back official to meet new Nebraska secondary coach Charlton Warren.

"He's a great coach, I can tell already," said Jones. "He's not going to sugarcoat anything. He's going to make you work hard. I would love to play for a coach like that."

Jones originally committed to South Florida. He then flipped on the USF decision and committed to Purdue in mid-December. While he appeared to be solid, teammate Desean Blair started to show interest in Nebraska, which sparked Jones' desire to check it out. He also has offers from Indiana, Florida International, UMass, Middle Tennessee, Western Kentucky, and Western Michigan.

Big Red Report will have more on the cornerback in the coming days.
