Nebraska Recruiting: Additional Thoughts on Jahkeem Green

April 16, 2019

Recruiting never stops and it's easy to miss the top stories day-to-day. Recruiting analyst Greg Smith recaps all things Nebraska recruiting news, analysis and more so you never miss a thing.

It was reported on Monday that Highland Community College defensive lineman Jahkeem Green‍ had committed to Nebraska. The defender stands at 6-foot-4, 300 pounds and has the versatility to play all along the defensive front.

Hail Varsity reached out to Green’s coach, Judd Remmers, on Monday evening. He was also with Green on his official visit to Nebraska. Remmers shared a little insight on Green’s strengths. 

“His overall strength and ability to use his hands to get separation, get off a block and make a play,” Remmers said about Green.

The biggest thing that stood out after watching Green’s film is the fact that he is not only a big player but also an athletic player. He doesn’t seem to have much bad weight and I was surprised that he is just over 300 pounds. It is a pretty unique situation to have a player of his talent level on the board this late in the game for the 2019 class. 

He was available for Nebraska because it didn’t look like he would qualify at South Carolina (where he originally committed). Nebraska has different requirements so once it appeared he was on track to graduate from Highland Community College, things moved quickly with the Huskers. 

Once again, Ryan Held deserves a lot of credit for finding what appears to be a junior college gem. Green has the ability to join Nebraska this summer which is another big bonus for the Huskers. He could end up contributing in the 2019 season or could even redshirt with the four-game rule. The bottom line is that Nebraska has another quality option to roll out with its defensive line, which is always a welcome sight for Husker fans.

While Pelton doesn’t have an offer from Nebraska yet, he came away impressed with what he saw in Lincoln.

“I thought it was just all around amazing. The coaching staff was very personable and [I] got to meet some new people.”

The positive reactions from the spring game just continue rolling in.
