The Nebraska football team has been taking aim at some rather under-the-radar prospects since the early signing period has come and gone. The problem is that since they started going after under-the-radar players like Michael Lockhart, other teams have been catching on to potential talent-laden players. Such is the case with Dylan Jordan. The outside linebacker from Pittsburg, Kansas had a grand total of one FBS offer before signing day.

Then the Huskers came calling. Now, two other Power 5 squads have entered the fray and one of them might be enough to pull him out of the Huskers' grasp.

Dylan Jordan has new reasons to stay home

Before the early signing period, Jordan had offers from Missouri State and Utah State. That is likely the reason he did not sign on the dotted line on December 19. It appears he made the right decision as other big-time schools have come calling.

Nebraska football looking to lock up 2019 class

The Huskers have laid out their plans to add a few more defensive players between the December 19 signing day and the February 6 signing day that marks the unofficial end to the 2019 recruiting class.

Dylan Jordan and Michael Lockhart are just two targets the Cornhuskers have laid out as who they want to sign. Tavian Mayo and Noa Pola-Gates are two defensive backs Frost and his staff are hoping to get on the roster for next season.

The Nebraska football team is able to land a rather large class thanks to departures that happened, mostly right before the regular season kicked off.

The staff has talked about wanting to land as many as 30 prospects in this class. That's allowing them to go after some longshots like Dylan Jordan to see who can pan out and turn into something no one expected.
