Fearless Leader Scott Frost and his Superlative Staff added another heavy dose of #speed to the mix today with a hard-hitting safety recruit out of Texas.
Cam’ron Jones, a 6’0” 200lb speedster, has played with a downhill style that works well against the run. His speed and hard-hitting style reminded me of Nate Gerry, although I have seen no pictures of his biceps to confirm. Jones’ confirmed 4.5 40 time added significant speed to the Husker defensive backfield. A former UCLA commit, he had the offer list you would expect of a four star recruit. The main competitors for his commitment were Texas Tech, Baylor and Ole Miss. Announcing live on TV tonight, Jones became the first 2018 recruit from the key recruiting area of Texas.
A 247 composite 4 star, Jones was the 23rd safety in the 2018 class, 36th recruit in the state of Texas, and 287 overall. This was a quality get for the 2018 class, moving the ranking to 22 overall, and fourth in the B1G, surpassing Maryland! Ryan Held may have cloned himself to work as much of the country as fast as he has.
Welcome to the Husker family, Cam! GBR!
