The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2019 season.

5-8, 175 • Freshman • running back
Jones caught one pass for 26 yards and ran once for 5 yards in his first season at NU. He redshirted, in part to heal a shoulder injury. Now healthy, he will line up all over the field. Nebraska’s thin at running back, so there’s a good chance he’ll get a decent load of carries. But the receiver depth isn’t ideal, either, so he could play a ton of Duck-R and slot receiver, too. Jones, a speedy four-star recruit from Florida, may not eclipse 100 yards in one category often. But with the number of positions he’ll play, he could get to the century mark in total yards in a hurry.
