Nebraska received a commitment from Fort Lauderdale (Florida) American Heritage offensive weapon Miles Jones. Three takes on the decision:

» He’s zippy, and that’s a good thing for a Scott Frost offense. Jones is fast, quick, explosive, you name it. He’s not big — just 5-foot-9, 170 pounds — but neither is current Husker JD Spielman. And Jones’ game is most like Spielman’s.

» Versatility. Jones’ Hudl film shows both a skilled runner and a receiver with route-running instincts. Frost’s system asks for both. The new Nebraska offense makes a living out of quick passes to backs. Jones will be a mismatch against linebackers and defensive ends in the flat.

» Top high school program. Jones comes from American Heritage, one of prep football’s top national powerhouses. The team finished 14-0 and was MaxPreps’ No. 6 team in the country.
