Miles Jones Commits to Nebraska

January 18, 2018

There is more speed heading to Lincoln.

On Thursday, Nebraska picked up the 17th commitment for the 2018 recruiting class when 3-star athlete Miles Jones‍ from American Heritage High School in Plantation, Florida, joined the class. On Tuesday, he posted a message announcing his decision to leave the Vanderbilt class.

The speedster from Florida announced his decision to join Nebraska via Twitter as well with this commitment video.

Jones was sold on being Nebraska’s version of Otis Anderson from Scott Frost’s time at UCF. If you are unfamiliar, Anderson was a do-everything type player in the UCF offense last season. He tallied 494 yards rushing with four touchdowns and 30 catches for 351 yards and three touchdowns as a true freshman for the Knights last season. Jones certainly has the skill set to be that type of player at Nebraska as he had 1,831 total yards as a senior and 16 touchdowns for his loaded American Heritage team. His high school team captured back-to-back state titles in Florida.

With the addition of Jones, the Huskers continue to reshape the skill positions with good, versatile additions in this class. He joins wide receiver Mike Williams, Jaron Woodyard and Justin McGriff, wide receiver/tight end Katerian Legrone, tight end Cameron Jurgens and running back Greg Bell in the infusion of skill talent to the roster.

The former Vanderbilt commit held double digit scholarship offers including Georgia, Mississippi State and Wisconsin.
