The Husker football recruiting staff offered four-star athlete Jaason Lewis on Wednesday.

Lewis, a 6’3″ 233-pound Swiss army knife from Virginia Beach, VA, is ranked as the No. 9 prospect in the state and the No. 17 do-it-all athlete in the nation.
It would be easier to tell you which schools he doesn’t have offers from at this point. The versatile speedster has gotten mail from Arizona State, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Miami (FL), LSU, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State among a vast array of others.
He originally committed to UCLA following an unofficial visit in early February, but backed off in May to revisit his options.
As of this writing, he’s now on an unofficial visit to LSU having previously taken an unofficial visit to Georgia in mid-June.
To be frank, this looks like a battle Nebraska won’t win, at least on the surface. What will decide just how good of a shot they have to land Lewis is who they assign as his primary recruiter and if they can get him to Lincoln at all.
Rich Fisher and Charlton Warren could be an effective one-two punch as Fisher’s familiar with the area and Warren’s one of Nebraska’s two best recruiters next to John Garrison.
The Huskers are getting into recruiting battles they previously never would, even winning a few. If Lewis committed to the Big Red, the staff would need to keep the fireworks in the shed and bust out some C4 for that “#BOOM”.
