Dylan Jordan has gone from a player most of the major programs in the country had never heard of to one that some of the best programs in the country were going after hard. Nebraska football is one of those programs. There was a time when the Huskers were the only major program going after the linebacker from Pittsburg, Kansas. It seems like it's been quite a while since the Huskers dug up the defender from the coal mine and unfortunately, he has made the most of the fact that a ton of other programs have jumped into the fray.

Nebraska football still a player

There is no doubt that the Huskers are still in play for Dylan Jordan, but there is also no doubt that it's going to be a fight to the finish. On Friday, the linebacker took an official visit to the Utah Utes. According to 247Sports he's checking out that campus with a group of players that are already committed to other places.

It's possible that the player visiting with players who are already committed could be good for the Nebraska football team. It might mean he's not going to be seeing a number of players that are all looking to pull the trigger on the Pac 12 school. There is also the chance that some of those players could swing and he'll see that as well, but it doesn't appear he's going to be pulling the plug on his recruiting.

Dylan Jordan seems to have laid out what he's going to do and with the exception of one change, he plans to stick to it.

Auburn takes the place of Kansas for Dylan Jordan

One change to the plans for the Nebraska football target is that Kansas is not in the picture anymore. The Jayhawks had jumped into the fray shortly after the Huskers.

There was some who thought that Kansas being under new management (read Les Miles) might be able to pull a player away from the Nebraska football team. It turns out even having a coach that has won a National Championship wasn't enough to lure Jordan to Lawrence.

Kansas has been replaced on the linebacker's radar by SEC power Auburn.

Jordan announced the change on his Twitter without an explanation of why the change was made. What is clear now, is that the Tigers might be the biggest threat to the Huskers landing the player since his recruitment started. There is an exception to that challenge. So far, Auburn does not have an official visit lined up. After his visit this weekend to Utah, he will be taking a visit to TCU next weekend. In two weeks, he's going to visit Lincoln. That is where the Nebraska football team could close it out.
