Stadium Dr. Rumblings: What Are The Odds Nebraska Lands Jordan Stevenson?

Yes, the Huskers are in the flow for the 4 star. But, how does Nebraska stack up on this one?

Student Sports

- So, you may have seen that the Wisconsin Badgers denied admission to their top 2015 Running Back signee Jordan Stevenson. The Dallas Oak Cliff RB had been waiting on admissions to clear him after he transferred from Dallas Skyline HS. However, it didn't happen.

While Stevenson wasn't even the top RB on the Wisconsin board, the fact that they lost a 4 star composite to admissions with less than a month to go before Fall Camps start will be the benefit of another program. And you bet that the Nebraska Cornhuskers have thrown their hat into the ring.

While they weren't the first ones into the fray, Nebraska is being considered the early "leader" due to their depth chart being the most friendliest for Stevenson to contribute to. Oregon State, with Gary Anderson already getting Stevenson's commitment with Wisconsin, is also in the fray here. Alabama and Tennessee are also being considered, however the fact that they have the least leeway with their previous recruiting and roster (karma for  Kendall Bussey? I dunno), the Huskers could sneak away with this one. Stevenson would count back to the '15 cycle, obviously, and would be able to sign and get into Lincoln ASAP.

One would think this whole process will not take too long, as Stevenson waited all of a day after decommitting from Texas to committing to Wisconsin, plus the whole get to school and settled in aspect.

Personally, I like Nebraska's chances here. The fact that the Huskers are at 80 scholarships helps currently, plus Stevenson can come in, learn the playbook, and be a factor in the backfield if injuries or such affect everything by Big Ten play.

- I lost my first 247 Crystal Ball prediction. Damnit.

Xavier Kelly, the #1 player in the state of Kansas, decided to head to Clemson on Friday. Nebraska did try here, but it was a situation where, no matter what, Kelly was going South.

- We told you that Keyshawn Johnson Jr. put Nebraska in his Top 8 last night. Now, another 2017 blue chipper wants to check out Nebraska as well.

Isaiah Wilson is a 6 foot 7, 322 pound to be Junior out of Poly Prep in Brooklyn, New York. He has a offer from Nebraska, and he looks to want to visit. Look at the tape, and realize that he's not only the real deal, this was when he was a Sophomore.
