The Nebraska football team offered defensive lineman Jamarcus Chatman on Tuesday. The defender is considered the best in the 2018 class.

It’s clear that after the Nebraska football team got a look at film on defensive lineman Jamarcus Chatman, they knew he could do some damage in the Big Ten. Chatman received an official offer on Tuesday night.

The offer is also a continuation of what has been quite the recruiting rivalry between Scott Frost’s staff and the Tennessee Volunteers. For whatever reason, the two staffs have gone head to head on a number of recruits late in 2018.

To some degree, it’s clear Frost and company are looking to pick up the pieces in what had been a disastrous coaching search for the Orange and White. The decommit of Chatman is just one of those pieces.

Chatman had been committed to Butch Jones and company but decided he needed to check out new options in the wake of the shakeup. While Nebraska also went through a staff shakeup, the school’s handling of the change seems to have impressed many around the college football world.

It helps too, that the Huskers boast the 2017 coach of the year as their new head man. Chatman announced the offer on his official Twitter page and at first blush, he appears quite happy that the Huskers have reached out.

He had his initial offer announcement posted, as well as a picture of him photoshopped into a Husker uniform. The offer has caught the attention of at least one current Husker signee in Katerian LeGrone.

The wide receiver made a special note to retweet the announcement that Chatman had been offered. While Jamarcus Chatman hasn’t made an official announcement on when he plans to visit Lincoln, the Nebraska football team has a few months to get him on campus before the February signing day.
