The Nebraska football team has been going hard after some under-the-radar players since the December 19 signing day. Scott Frost and company had hoped they might be able to add some depth to the recruiting class without anyone noticing. The problem is that by offering players like Michael Lockhart and Dylan Jordan, the players have gotten attention from other FBS schools, as well as scholarship offers.

Now the Huskers are having to hope they can still reel in the outside linebacker that had one FBS offer before the Cornhuskers came calling.

Now that the Huskers have indeed come calling, other schools have been turning up the heat. Utah, TCU, Kansas and Kansas State are all very much in on the defender. That's despite the fact that 247Sports and Rivals still don't have any kind of rating on the player.

Dylan Jordan is one of those players that has made quite a name for himself in the last month. He's someone that is also being smart about the way he's handling the new attention. Jordan didn't pull the trigger on a team right away and then spend the rest of his time regretting the fact that he committed. He's being careful about where he's going to go. Earlier this week, he laid out what he plans for the schools that he's still considering.

It should come as no surprise that Dylan Jordan is indeed looking at five schools. The Nebraska football team is doing "battle" with TCU, Utah, Kansas and Kansas State. Interestingly, it appears it will either be Kansas or Kansas State staying in the fray. He announced he's going to start his official visits with Utah this coming weekend.

He will then be visiting TCU on January 18 until January 21st. Next up will be a visit to Lincoln at the end of this month. After that, it appears he's not clear on whether he'll be visiting Kansas or Kansas State for his final visits.

His "and/or" is likely raising some eyebrows at both schools. In addition to Jordan's announcement of when he plans to visit the schools on his list, he's also shed some light on when he is going to announce his school.

That too might raise some eyebrows as he has said that he will either be committing on January 28 or February 4. It appears quite a bit of this depends on whether or not he is making a trip to see his in-state school.

Nebraska football fans should be rooting for a January 28 commit date, as it will mean they aren't having to fight off Dylan Jordan's urge to stay home. The good news is no matter what happens from here on, we're just a month away from signing day, so things are going to be sorted out soon.
