Nebraska football will be hosting a four-star athlete in January.

The Nebraska football team isn’t considering its case closed when it comes to the 2018 football recruiting class. While the early signing period has come and gone, there’s still the regular signing period to worry about.

Vanderbilt appears to be doing most of the worrying when it comes to four-star athlete Miles Jones. Jones has confirmed to Rivals that he will be taking an official visit to Nebraska in the new year.

Rob Cassidy confirmed Jones is going to be hitting Lincoln on January 12. One look at Jones’ tape and you understand why the Plantation, Florida athlete is so sought after.

Not only can he line up in the slot and catch a pass, but he has blazing speed from the backfield. Jones is also a talented kick returner, something the Huskers are always on the lookout for.

If Nebraska is able to nab him, it would be quite the coup. The Commodores are far from the only squad who is looking to lock him up in February.

It was actually quite an accomplishment that Vanderbilt landed him in the first place. The four-star player has been offered by Georgia, West Virginia and Wisconsin among many others.

In all, Jones has more than 13 offers from FBS schools. At the moment, the Huskers are the only school that are expecting an official visit between now and signing day.

This might be the first real test for the new staff as far as just how much pull they have when it comes to luring in Florida prospects. To some degree, the team has managed to make the Nebraska football team a landing spot for plenty of Florida players. Miles Jones being pulled away from the SEC would certainly be a way for Scott Frost and company to put a stamp on their class.
