Nebraska In Top Five For FL OLB

Nebraska has found themselves in the top five for 2017 Miami-based outside linebacker, Nadarius Fagan.

Miami-Dade County has certainly been kind to Clay Helton and the USC Trojans over the past couple of months, and one of the high school programs that's opened their doors and gladly welcomed the Pac-12 program is Miami Southridge, who has over a dozen prospects on their roster with Division I offers to choose from

One of their highly-coveted prospects that continues to soak up the attention of colleges all throughout the nation, including USC, is Nadarius Fagan, a senior-to-be outside linebacker who reeled in an offer from the Trojans on Monday afternoon.

"I love the school because of the surrounding actors, as well as their acting program," Fagan said when asked about USC. "I like the defense they run and I could make an impact there. The football facilities are nice, and I also like how the coaches bond with the players."

The Trojans recently dipped into Miami to sign two of the city's can't-miss talents in Jamel Cook and Keyshawn Young, so there would be somewhat of a familiarity if the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Fagan opted to take his craft out to Los Angeles.  

"I played against Pie (Keyshawn Young) my freshman and sophomore years, so I have somewhat communicated with him and Jamel," Fagan said. "We played in 7v7 as well, so I'll bond with both."

Fagan, who has captured additional scholarship offers from the likes of AlabamaLSUNebraskaTemple and Syracuse, has a constructed a top five with a decision timeline in mind as well.

"My top five are LSU, Nebraska, USC, Syracuse and Alabama in no order," Fagan said. "My decision will probably be after the summer, and I'll be making visits to all five in the summer as well."

Stay tuned to Scout as we continue to monitor Fagan's recruitment.
