The Nebraska football team has just a few weeks until the 2019 recruiting class is officially locked in. When that class is locked in, Scott Frost and company are hoping that Dylan Jordan is in the fold. What may come as a surprise to most Husker fans is how hard it might be to make sure that the Kansas linebacker is indeed a member of the roster when the final signing day comes and goes.

Dylan Jordan unknown no more

There was a time when Jordan was unranked and unknown. The only FBS team that came calling before the Huskers was Utah State. Then the early signing period rolled around, and Frost and company decided they wanted to get at least one more defensive player on the team.

Either the Cornhuskers were simply the first to realize just how good he was, and the rest of the teams were going to come calling, or Nebraska started a bit of a tidal wave.

Whatever the cause, the Dylan Jordan went from being an unranked player on most all the recruiting services to being among the best players in the state of Kansas. He's also gone from zero stars to four-stars when looking at 247Sports. While the Pittsburg linebacker still hasn't garnered the same kind of love from Rivals that has from 247, he still has managed to rate as a 3-star prospect in the composite rankings.

Nebraska football fighting off the competition

Rivals have Jordan the number seven player in the entire state of Kansas, for the 2019 class, while 247Sports has ranked him the number five player.

After the Nebraska football team came calling, Kansas and Kansas State showed up with offers soon after. TCU and Auburn were in the picture soon after. Now it's just a matter of the Cornhusker finding a way to finally close the trap on the outside linebacker and make him a part of the 2019 class.

Last weekend, the defender took in the sights at TCU.

There are now more than a few recruiting experts who believe the Horned Frogs might be the team to beat. The Huskers are hoping that isn't the case. He's slated to visit Lincoln this weekend, and the coaching staff went down to Pittsburg to show the defender some love. It seems likely they managed to mention the fact that they were the first Power 5 school to give Jordan an offer.

The team is going to have to lean on a sense of loyalty if they want to lock the defender down before signing day. There is a chance Dylan Jordan is going to be announcing his final landing spot just a few days after he leaves Lincoln. At that point, the Nebraska football team will find out whether all their time and attention paid off.
