Getting To Know Lorenzo Jones

Lorenzo Jones from Mckinney, TX has recently shown up on the radar screen of the Nebraska Cornhuskers as a defensive prospect that NU would like to take a long gander at. He's currently being looked at by much of the Big XII conference, so what are Nebraska's chances at the large young man from the Lone Star State?

Lorenzo Jones is a name that many don't know just yet in Nebraska recruiting circles, but that's about to change.  The 6' 4", 293-pound defensive tackle prospect from Mckinney, Texas has a number of Big XII conference schools talking, one of those being Nebraska.  Lorenzo currently claims both a verbal and written offer from the University of Nebraska along with Iowa State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas. 


So, will Lorenzo be making a trip to Nebraska to see Lincoln?  "Probably next Saturday, for the Colorado game.  I'm just coming in looking to see what it's all about," said Jones.  Indeed, he'll be treated to a matchup that has gotten quite heated over the past several years as Nebraska takes on Colorado for a bowl bid and a shot at the Big XII North crown.


Coach Turner Gill is recruiting Lorenzo and, so far, has made a solid impression with the young man.  "I talked to him a couple times and he sounds like a really good guy.  He's always calling and writing a lot," Jones said.  Jones currently states his Top Five as Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa State, Nebraska and Arizona.  Lorenzo says that, currently, all five schools are on the same level.  Lorenzo's team has ended their season with Jones ending his senior campaign with 87 tackles, 7 sacks and 19 tackles for loss.
