The Nebraska football team is the latest to offer California offensive lineman Jarrett Bell.

The day after Christmas is usually a pretty big shopping day. Turns out the Nebraska football coaches are going shopping for offensive linemen.

The Husker staff was the latest in what is an evergrowing group that is looking to land California-based Jarrett Bell. Bell tweeted out the announcement he had received an offer from Nebraska on Tuesday afternoon.

While Scott Frost and company have largely stayed away from the west coast until now, it appears they are turning their sights to the left side of the country these days. Just yesterday they were among the first Big Ten schools to offer a recruit from Arizona.

The Cornhuskers are officially the first school from the conference to offer Bell. Among the teams they will be competing with are UCLA, Arizona, Washington State and Alabama.

While 247 Sports has Bell as a huge lean towards the Bruins, they hadn’t been contending with the Huskers until now. While he’s rated as just a three-star player by 247, he’s rated as a four-star lineman by Rivals.

He’s also ranked as the 9th best lineman in the country by that recruiting service. Standing at 6-5 and weighing in at 295, it’s easy to figure out why he’s a sought-after recruit.

He’s also yet another reminder that the early signing day doesn’t mean that recruiting season for the 2018 class is even remotely finished. Jarrett Bell will be signing with somebody, hopefully, the Nebraska football team, in February.
