Lamar Jackson will sit down with HC Mike Riley on Tuesday night

Nebraska target Lamar Jackson, a Scout.com Top 300 player, will host head coach Mike Riley and the Huskers on Tuesday night.

Nebraska is still looking for multiple defensive backs in the 2016 class and would love nothing more than to have Scout.com Top 300 DB Lamar Jackson be one of them. Considered by some a USC or Michigan lean, Jackson visited Nebraska in early November to see the Huskers knock off Michigan State. 

"The fan base is like no other," said Jackson Sunday night. "They made me really feel important. Also the school has great coaches."

Nebraska will show Jackson how much of a priority he is, when they visit the West's No. 1 safety on Tuesday - an early visit by head coach Mike Riley and defensive back coach Brian Stewart. 

"It was great at Nebraska and was way better than I expected," said Jackson at the time of his visit. "I came in open minded and it left a big impression on me.

"Coach (Mike) Riley is real down to earth and the whole staff reflects that," said Jackson.  "We all sat together and ate a meal and we all talked, me, Coach Stewart, Coach (Mark) Banker and Coach Riley and they all said I'd be a baller for them."
