Eshaunte Jones has found the end of the recruiting road. The former Oregon State commitment from Fort Wayne, Indiana is now headed to Nebraska.
Jones, a 6-foot-4 guard who spent last season at Hargrave Military in Virginia, will enroll at Nebraska at the end of the summer, according to his travel team coach Eric Vaughn.
"He just loved coach [Doc] Sadler and [assistant] coach David Anwar, he was the one that got it done," Vaughn said. "Bear liked the school when he took his visit and he liked his potential teammates and the city. It was just one of those deals where he fell in love as soon as he got there."
Vaughn said Nebraska and Jones were a perfect fit for each other.
"It's a situation where he find a spot to play right away. This late in the game, you can't find that," Vaughn said. "When they lost Roburt Sallie, a guy that they were going to rely heavily on, Bear was the guy that they wanted. He was a savior to them in a sense. I think they got a pretty good player."
Kentucky, Pittsburgh and Baylor were also in the picture, Vaughn said.
