Until the start of fall camp, The World-Herald will be counting down the top 50 players you need to know heading into the 2015 Husker football season.

Chris Jones

6-0  |  180  |  Soph.  |  CB

You might recall seeing glimpses of Jones on De’Mornay Pierson-El punt returns last year. Jones was the guy taking out potential tacklers, then celebrating the blocks as if they were drive-halting picks. Special teams could be part of Jones’ responsibility again. Or he could be asked to do more.

Along with the physical tools necessary to play cornerback, Jones has never-quit drive. Even when he loses a battle in practice, he bounces right back to take the next rep. Now he just has to find a way to ascend through a loaded depth chart.
