The next offer in Nebraska’s search for a 2013 quarterback commit is Marietta, Ga., talent Anthony Jennings. He’s 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, accounting for 2,647 total yards and 27 total touchdowns last year.
NU OC Tim Beck offered Jennings after watching him in a spring practice. Alabama offered this week, too, and Jennings has already made unofficial visits to Virginia Tech, Mississippi State and West Virginia. He won MVP at the Atlanta Elite 11 camp and recently earned an invite to the Elite 11 Finals in California.
“They run that spread option style and I like that,” Jennings told Huskers Illustrated. “That’s what I run in high school right now, so I feel like it wouldn’t take me that long to make the full transition. I also really like coach Beck and he seems like a real nice dude. That’s the little I know about Nebraska.”
Jennings’ highlight tape is better than Aaron Bailey’s, if you’re looking for a thrower. Jennings showed the ability to wait until receivers got open in zones, put smoke on the ball against man-to-man coverage and kept plays alive with his feet while still looking downfield for a receiver.
