Over the weekend, Nebraska hosted just one official visitor: 3-star (HV Rating: 88.8) outside linebacker Dylan Jordan. The Pittsburg, Kansas, native who stands at 6-foot-3 and 215-pounds told Hail Varsity after the visit that Nebraska was a great place to be. He is set to announce his college decision Monday afternoon.
I'll be announcing my commitment some time this afternoon! Stay tuned!!!

So, what’s the latest intel on where things stand with him?
Typically, when a school gets the last official visit for a prospect and it’s the day before he makes his announcement, it means good things for that team. However, my sources have now indicated that Nebraska was trailing TCU heading into the weekend and there is uncertainty on if enough was done to close that gap. Hail Varsity can also confirm that TCU coach Gary Patterson went in-home with Jordan and his family Sunday night after they returned from Lincoln.
The Huskers have clearly been recruiting Jordan hard for a while now. During the different contact periods the Huskers have visited Jordan in Kansas multiple times. Running backs coach and area recruiter Ryan Held, outside linebackers coach Jovan Dewitt, defensive coordinator Erik Chinander and coach Scott Frost have all visited Jordan.
Right now, there is a lot of smoke around Jordan and TCU but at this point he is keeping his cards close as we wind down to decision time. Should Nebraska miss on Jordan, the Huskers will still have outside linebacker Steven Parker left on the board as they look for additional pass rush help in the 2019 class.
