Nebraska Football makes Top 5 for four-star target

Nebraska football had some positive news on the recruiting trail Saturday afternoon.  2024 four-star athlete Jayshawn Ross announced his top five. Nebraska was part of that group. Ross added Michigan, Penn State, Tennessee, and Oklahoma to that group as well.

Ross is a four-star recruit. He is the 15th overall athlete in the 2024 class, and the eight overall player in his class from the state of Missouri currently on three recruiting rankings. He has visited Nebraska over the last month.  Ross took a visit to Lincoln on June 3.

Ross play both sides of football for Liberty High School last season. He is an interesting prospect in the sense that he played both the linebacker and wide receiver positions in high school. He is being recruited by assistant linebackers coach Rob Dvoracek. This would mean that he is going to potentially play on the defensive side of the football.

What could he bring to Nebraska football?

Ross uses a combination of aggressive moves to get after the quarterback quickly. He has good size at six-foot-four, 220 pounds. He also has the ability to play the edge position, which could help Nebraska with the 3-3-5 defense that they are running. Explosiveness is something that is a major part of his game, and he could be a good fit on the defensive side of the football.

Nebraska football needs players that can get into the backfield, especially with the type of defense they are running. Ross can certainly do that.

Currently, the 2024 class is loaded with stellar athletes and solid commitments. The class ranks   21st overall per the On3 recruiting rankings.

Nebraska football will have their work cut out for them, especially as they go up against some of the premier schools in the Big Ten. Hopefully, Nebraska football will be able to land him, and add another stellar player on the defensive side of the football.
