Four-Star Signee Lamar Jackson Will Now Turn Into A Recruiter For Nebraska

Nebraska cornerback signee Lamar Jackson says he will start working on other players to come to Lincoln.

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.”
