For whatever academic reason, Wisconsin denied admission to touted 2015 signee Jordan Stevenson. Now, though, they could very well have to face the running back once a season for at least the next three years.
While nothing is official from his new school, Jordan Stevenson announced on his personal Twitter account that he has decided to continue on with UW’s Big Ten West rival Nebraska. Stevenson had taking a visit to Lincoln shortly after he was denied admission to the school with which he signed, then followed that up with a visit to Miami. There was also talk that yet another visit, this one to Alabama, could be in the offing this weekend, although that never came to fruition.
For the past week or so, though, the Cornhuskers have been widely viewed as the favorites to land the player’s services. Stevenson will be eligible to play immediately for the ‘Huskers in 2015.
Rivals.com had the Texas high school product as a four-star prospect, rated as the No. 27 running back in the country and the No. 34 player at any position in the state.
