Needing a running back in the 2017 class, Nebraska has dipped into the local scene.
On Thursday night the Huskers landed Bellevue West prep Jaylin Bradley, who recently put together one of the best prep seasons in Nebraska history. The senior rushed for nearly 3,000 yards and found the end zone 50 overall times.
According to multiple reports, Bradley received big news earlier this week, when he found out he had an ACT score that would allow him to play at the next level. It was one of the last hurdles when it came to picking up an offer from the Huskers.
"Excited probably isn't the word, as a life long husker fan I am ecstatic," said Bellevue West head coach Michael Huffman. "I am so proud of him and the work he had to do on and off the field to make this dream a reality! This shows every high school player and coach in the state that playing for the Big Red is possible!"
Nebraska could use a second running back in the 2017 class, but it is very possible Bradley might be the only player at the position on National Signing Day.
