Nebraska Looking To Snag GA Four Star Safety

Realizing the value of placing speed and height at the safety position with the recent switch of Leon Jackson to the position due to the glut at runningback, Nebraska is out recruiting safeties with a lot of the same measurables. The Cornhuskers are eyeballing a four-star prospect out of Georgia that would fit the bill quite nicely. We were able to sit down with him and get an idea of his plans for the future.

Reshad Jones, a safety prospect out of Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta, Georgia continues to wow schools with his physical and ball hawking style of play.  His efforts have been enough to garner 32 offers from the likes of Oklahoma, Louisville, Kentucky, LSU, Miami, Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Auburn, Clemson, Tennessee, USC, Tulane, Nebraska, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Michigan and Tennessee.

The 6' 2" 185 pound safety attending camps at both Arkansas and Auburn and is currently reporting a 4.5 40 yard dash time along with a 265 pound bench press, a 315 pound squat and a 255 pound power clean.  He managed 72 tackles and two interceptions from his spot in the secondary last year and his efforts netted him Second Team All-State honors.

Jones reports that the relationship with Nebraska is so-so right now.  He feels that communication could improve and more than likely would once the coaches gain the ability to call him.  "(Nebraska)'s alright.  I'm just receiving mail from them. I haven't heard much from the coaches, I don't know too much about them.  I am Interested in learning more, though," he said.

Reshad recently took trips to LSU, Arkansas, Auburn and Mississippi State and has not narrowed down his choices for an official visit nor for schools that he would like to visit.  He mentions that at the current rate, a commitment is likely to happen around Signing Day.  When it comes down to big factors that a school will have to have for Reshad to consider them seriously, it all boils down to the depth chart.  "I'd love to play as a true freshman and I'm going to compete no matter what," he said.
