Huskers in the mix for RB Jordan Stevenson

Nebraska is in the mix for four-star running back Jordan Stevenson.

Nebraska is in the mix for 2015 four-star South Oak Cliff running back Jordan Stevenson. The Wisconsin signee was recently denied admission in Madison, a big blow to the Badgers offense. 

Big Red Report reached out to Stevenson's recruiting coordinator at South Oak Cliff, R.J. Bond, to get the latest. He did say a conversation between Nebraska head coach Mike Riley and Stevenson took place on Friday.

Stevenson recorded 2,530 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2014. He finished his career with nearly 5,000 yards and 53 total scores, racking up offers from schools such as Alabama, Arkansas, Ohio State, UCLA and Oklahoma State. 

"Stevenson is a solid all-purpose back. He likes to hit the defense off tackle and then pop the runs to the outside to chew up chunks of yardage," said Scout.com national recruiting analyst Greg Powers. "He is also effective in the middle of the field out of the spread offense. He hits the hole quickly. He came on as the season progressed and ended up as his team’s top true rushing back, scoring 11 times as a sophomore against 5A Texas competition. He has good hands as well." 

The DFW product was a member of the Scout.com Top 100 in the Class of 2015. Stevenson stands at 5-foot-10 and 203-pounds.
