Nebraska Recruiting: Huskers Extend New JUCO Offer

August 11, 2022

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

I don’t think the phrase “if you’re not first, you’re last” applies to college football recruiting, but it can’t hurt to be the first team to extend an offer to a prospect, right?

Nebraska was for Iowa Western Community College defensive lineman Quientrail Jamison-Travis. That he’s in Council Bluffs––which I think qualifies as the Huskers’ backyard––probably didn’t hurt either when it came to getting to Jamison-Travis first.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound native of Minneapolis played in six games in the COVID-shortened spring season of 2021, recording 12 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. Jamison-Travis broke out for the Reivers in fall of last year. Over 11 games, he made 45 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss (including two sacks), forced another fumble and recovered one. He also had six pass breakups on the season, earning first-team NJCAA All-America honors.

Iowa Western faced New Mexico Military Institute in the NJCAA Division I National Championship game last season, a team that was led by All-American and national Offensive Player of the Year Anthony Grant. Now a Husker running back, Grant rushed 34 times for 192 yards with two touchdowns. Jamison-Travis recorded four tackles in the game.

A three-sport start at Minneapolis North High School, Jamison-Travis had 21 tackles for loss, including 17 sacks, as a high school senior, earning first-team All-Metro honors from the Star Tribune. He also still holds school records in shot and discus.

If the stats and school records don’t convey it, there appears to be athleticism aplenty. You can check out his highlights below.
