Forget West Coast bias, because California athlete Jaylon Redd has named two Big Ten teams in his top eight list.
The 4-star cornerback/wide receiver from Rancho Cucamonga, Cal., listed Michigan and Nebraska in his top eight, which he revealed in a Twitter video Thursday morning. The Wolverines and Cornhuskers join Notre Dame, Oregon, UCLA, USC and Arizona State on Redd’s list.

Redd is rated as the No. 24 cornerback in the country nationally in the Class of 2017 and the No. 22 player in the state of California. The 5-foot-9 athlete has not taken any visits to any of his remaining choices, according to 247Sports.com.
Michigan already has 18 commitments in its 2017 class, which currently ranks fourth in the country. Nebraska has 11 commitments in its Class of 2017 and does not have a commitment from a defensive back yet. Coach Mike Riley’s class currently ranks No. 27 in the nation.
