Jones enjoys official to Nebraska

A position of need still for the Cornhuskers is offensive line. Nebraska recently entered the picture for one of the biggest offensive tackles out there, Marcel Jones. The 6-foot-7 and 320-pound Jones has seen his recruitment pick up as of late and Nebraska has been one of those teams.

Nebraska has been hot on the trail of Marcel Jones for a little while now. Last weekend he was able to take a trip to see Lincoln.

"The visit was real nice," Jones said. "I wasn't able to take part in the banquet because we had a game, but I saw practice."

"The practice was good. I liked how they started that off in the Husker Drill. They got after it early."

While Jones didn't get to talk to players at the banquet, he still got a good idea from the entire weekend.

"I really liked the players and how all the players got along. Although I didn't get to see the banquet I could tell how they were together."

Nebraska was his second official visit and he has a third set up. "I have been to Arizona State already and have an official set up to see Oregon State in January."

Jones was told that there weren't going to be many offensive lineman in the class this year for Nebraska. Jones took it as a complement.

"Nebraska told me that they are only taking two offensive lineman and that they want me to be one. That's a real honor."

A popular topic for Jones might be when he is planning on committing. You can't hurry the process, but he obviously wants to know what Nebraska is thinking.

"Coach Dennis Wagner and Bill Busch are coming by the house later tonight and I was going to ask them about when they needed to know if I would commit or not. It's all happening a little fast and I would like to sit down and talk things over with my mom."

Since the firing of the head coach, at Arizona State, Jones has been left to wonder where he sits with them. "I missed a call from them the other day, but other than that I really hadn't heard from them."
