Elkhorn (Cali.) Franklin high school defensive back Lamar Jackson picked Nebraska on Tuesday, giving the Huskers and head coach Mike Riley a lot of good vibes heading into National Signing Day.
Jackson, who had a huge offer list, immediately saw his phone blow up.
“I kind of had a feeling it was going to happen. I’m trying to keep up,” said Jackson, when talking with Big Red Report on Wednesday. “I realize it was a big win recruiting win. The fans showed me a ton of love and never stopped, even though my visit was a while ago. That’s why I put them up on my list, because they filled up my timeline. It was appreciated and made me feel important.”
Committed and signed, the California high profile, four-star defensive back will now go to work. Not only getting himself ready to play right away, but also as a recruiter.
“I knew I was going to Nebraska last week, so I have been on everyone since then. I’m really trying to get the Calabasas kids out there. I think they are going to come,” said Jackson, who talked about his decision to commit. “It was everything about Nebraska as a whole. I think the fan base is amazing. I trust the coaching staff. Coach Riley is a good guy. He’s really chilled. He goes by his plan. They are a first class. The recruits they are bringing in, it’s going to work.”
