  12/20/21 - Jackson HannahrSo/2024, Nebraska, 6-2, 220 (DS#999 OLB) + More +

  A reserve linebacker is leaving Nebraska. Nebraska inside linebacker Jackson Hannah is entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal on Wednesday, a source confirmed to the Journal Star. Hannah, a Nashville, Tennessee, native, played in every game in 2021 on special teams but was down the depth chart at inside linebacker. Hannah first signed with Nebraska as part of the 2019 class out of Montgomery Bell Academy in Tennessee. He didn't appear in a game in his first two seasons with the program before carving out the special teams role this fall. - Lincoln Journal Star

  12/20/21 - Trey PalmerJr/2023, Nebraska, 6-0, 187 (DS#6 WR) + More +

  LSU junior wide receiver Trey Palmer has entered the transfer portal, according to reports by Rivals and 247 Sports. Palmer appeared in 11 games this year and had 30 receptions for 344 yards and three touchdowns this year. He was also a key piece of LSU's special teams as both a punt and kick returner. This year, Palmer returned 18 punts for 117 yards, good enough for No. 8 in the SEC. He also returned a punt for a touchdown in 2019 and a kickoff for a touchdown in 2020. The Kentwood athlete was a four-star recruit out of high school in the class of 2019. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  12/17/21 - Cam JurgensrJr/2022, Nebraska, 6-3, 290 (DS#9 C) + More +

  Cam Jurgens, who arguably would have been the most important returning player on Nebraska's 2022 offense, has decided to try his hand in the NFL. A three-year starter at center for the Huskers, Jurgens made the announcement via social media on Tuesday night. The Beatrice High School graduate has made 18 straight starts and 31 total for Nebraska. Although the Husker offensive line struggled mightily this season as the team slid to a 3-9 record (1-8 Big Ten), Jurgens was a bright spot. The fourth-year sophomore cleaned up the wayward-snap issues that plagued him during the previous two seasons and played a lead role in NU ranking 24th nationally in total offense at 446.6 yards per game. Nebraska's offensive line, though, struggled in pass protection and with overall consistency this season. However, Jurgens isn't part of that conversation. In fact, he's a player Husker head coach Scott Frost could've built around in 2022 as the coach tries to win enough games to retain his job into 2023. - Lincoln Journal Star

  12/17/21 - Casey ThompsonrJr/2023, Nebraska, 6-0, 192 (DS#15 QB) + More +

  Texas quarterback Casey Thompson, who started 10 games and passed for 24 touchdowns this season, entered the transfer portal Friday. Thompson is leaving after former Ohio State quarterback Quinn Ewers, one of the top-rated players in the country when he came out of high school after the 2020 season, transferred to Texas. Texas also signed quarterback Maalik Murphy of Gardena, California, and Longhorns coach Steve Sarkisian said the position would be open ahead of the 2022 season. Thompson, an Oklahoma City native, will be a graduate transfer. Thompson was the backup to Hudson Card for the first two game before taking over the starting role. He passed for 2,113 yards as Texas finished 5-7 in a season the program had its first five-game losing streak since 1956. Thompson's six touchdowns passes in an overtime loss to Kansas tied a school record. He had two other games with five TD passes, but also had a mid-season thumb injury that appeared to affect his throwing in several games. - AP College Football

  12/15/21 - Brian BuschinirFr/2025, Nebraska, 6-0, 219 (DS#4 P) + More +

  The University of Montana's punter, Brian Buschini, has had an active Monday. He was named the FCS punter of the year, entered his name into the transfer portal and picked up a scholarship offer from Nebraska all within a span of about three hours. Buschini, a Helena, Montana native, averaged 46 yards per punt during his redshirt freshman season for the Griz. According to MontanaSports.com, he had 28 punts of 50-plus yards, pinned 30 inside the 20-yard line in 69 attempts and recorded only four touchbacks. Buschini also handled kickoffs for Montana this fall. He has three seasons of eligibility remaining. - Lincoln Journal Star

  12/15/21 - Timmy BleekroderSo/2024, Nebraska, 5-08, 189 (DS#999 K) + More +

  The Huskers believe they addressed one element on Sunday after landing a verbal commitment from Furman transfer kicker Timmy Bleekrode. Bleekrode, an Atlanta native, actually handled both punting and kicking at the Football Championship Subdivision school, but he is expected to most likely focus on place kicking at Nebraska. In 2021, Bleekrode made 15-of-18 field goal attempts with a season-best of 51 yards. That included making eight of his final nine tries from Sept. 25 on after missing twice in Furman's first three games. Bleekrode also connected on 30-of-32 extra points this fall. In 2020, he made 6-of-7 attempts for Furman with a long of 47 yards. - Lincoln Journal Star

He also converted 15-of-18 field goals for the Paladins this fall. - Furman Football

  The Arizona State football program has had a lot of depth in the secondary the last two years, but that is taking a hit as true freshman Tommi Hill announced on social media he intends to transfer. Hill was a primary backup this season and saw some time on special teams. With the Sun Devils graduating veteran cornerbacks Chase Lucas, Jack Jones and Timarcus Davis, Hill likely would have contended for a starting spot come the spring. The 6-foot, 205-pounder totaled nine tackles in 11 games. - Arizona Daily Star

  2021 BIG TEN KWALICK-CLARK TIGHT END OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Austin Allen, Nebraska,...A native of Aurora, Neb., Allen was a first-team all-conference choice by the Big Ten media panel and earned second-team accolades from the Big Ten coaches. Allen is the first Husker position player to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors since 2014, and he is the first Husker tight end to be a first-team all-conference selection since Matt Herian in 2003.

Allen had a record-setting season for a Nebraska tight end in 2021, setting school position records for receptions (38) and yards (602), and a single-game record for receiving yards by a tight end with 143 yards at Wisconsin. Allen led all Big Ten tight ends in receiving yards, and his 15.8 yards per reception ranked sixth nationally among tight ends and bettered all other Big Ten tight ends by more than three yards per catch. - Nebraska Football

  Linebacker JoJo Domann, one of the top tacklers in Nebraska history, announced Thursday that his career with the Cornhuskers is over following surgery on his left hand. Domann, who made the announcement on his podcast, said he injured a finger early in the Oct. 30 game against Purdue. The sixth-year senior from Colorado Springs, Colorado, played one of his best games last week against Ohio State. He made nine tackles, intercepted a pass and broke up two others. Domann played in 51 games and finished his career with 209 tackles. His 133 solo tackles rank 11th on the school's all-time chart. The Huskers (3-7, 1-6 Big Ten) close the season at Wisconsin on Nov. 20 and against Iowa at home on Nov. 26. - AP College Football

  10/11/21 - Teddy ProchazkaFr/2025, Nebraska, 6-7, 305 (DS#999 OT) + More +

  Nebraska offensive lineman Teddy Prochazka will miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury. The freshman was hurt in the 32-29 loss to Michigan on Saturday, his second start at left tackle. Coach Scott Frost said Prochazka would have surgery next week and should return for spring practice. “You feel terrible for anybody when they get hurt," Frost said Monday. "These kids put so much time and effort and energy into this and Teddy's been just improving by leaps and bounds since he got here. He was getting to reap the benefit of that. It's a tough setback. Guys come back from these things and he'll be fine.” Turner Corcoran will take over for Prochazka at left tackle and Bryce Benhart will move into Corcoran's spot at right tackle for the Cornhuskers' game at Minnesota this Saturday. Prochazka was the second true freshman in the modern era to start a game at left tackle. Corcoran was the first, getting the start at Rutgers in 2020. - AP College Football

  SEPT 27 BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Casey Thompson, Texas, QB, Jr.,...Thompson completed 18-of-23 passes and established career-highs with 303 passing yards and five passing touchdowns to lead Texas to a 70-point game for the first time since 2005. The five passing touchdowns are tied for second-most in a single game in UT history. He carried the ball seven times for 29 yards and a touchdown to give him six touchdowns responsible for, which is also tied for second in program records. With Texas' touchdown to close out the first half against Texas Tech, Thompson had led the Longhorns on 11 consecutive touchdown drives. Since entering at halftime of last season's Valero Alamo Bowl, the junior has guided Texas to a score when he is the QB on 24 of 27 drives. - Big 12 Football

  09/25/21 - Casey ThompsonrJr/2023, Nebraska, 6-0, 192 (DS#15 QB) + More +

  Casey Thompson threw five touchdowns and ran for another as Texas continued its offensive explosion since naming him the starting quarterback with a 70-35 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday. With Thompson at the controls of the offense, the Longhorns have scored more than 40 points in the first half in consecutive games while mixing Thompson's ever-expanding role as a passer with a powerful running game. Thompson was 18-of-23 passing for 303 yards and ran for a score in the first half. Hudson Card started the first two games for Texas (3-1, 1-0 Big 12), but was replaced by Thompson after the Longhorns struggled badly in a road loss at Arkansas. Texas scored on all five of its possessions in the first half against Texas Tech and added a 27-year interception return by Josh Thompson.

Three of Casey Thompson's touchdown throws went to freshman Xavier Worthy, including a 23-yard touch pass into end zone coverage, and a 62-yard score when Worthy broke two tackles and sprinted away from two defenders. Texas scored 70 points for the first time since beating Colorado 70-3 in the 2005 Big 12 championship game. Bijan Robinson ran for 137 yards and scored Texas' first touchdown. Roschon Johnson added two rushing touchdowns for the Longhorns. Texas Tech quarterback Henry Colombi passed for 324 yards and three touchdowns for Texas Tech (3-1, 0-1) after coming on for injured started Tyler Shough in the second quarter. - Texas/AP College Football
