We’ve missed Omaha sending a stud runner to Lincoln.

You should be on the Nebraska Cornhuskers radar if you do things in the state of Nebraska and the city of Omaha like Jaylin Bradley did. Running for 50 touchdowns in your senior season, 496 yards & 7 TDs IN ONE GAME.

That alone puts you on the map, and now that he’s qualified, he has sent his letter of intent down the freeway to Lincoln. He is now a member of the Nebraska Class of 2017.

Bradley, who set all those records at Bellevue West High School, is the 4th-best player in the state of Nebraska and 88th-best running back in the 2017 recruiting cycle. Both those sets are based on the 247Sports composite ratings.

Bradley only had one Power 5 offer from Nebraska and his only other offer was from South Dakota State. Bradley was considered a academic risk for much of his last 2 years, and both his rating and offer list suffered as most services didn’t bother to check him out because of that.

Expectation: It’s not the most deep running back stable in Lincoln, so Bradley can definitely get on the field and show something if he can master things like blocking out of the backfield and catching the football. If he can do that at a good level and stay qualified, there’s no doubt that he can be a solid contributor in Lincoln in a couple of years. One has to hope that by the time Bradley leaves Lincoln, he’s a success story in how perseverance paid off for both him and the Nebraska staff.
