ESPN lists Nebraska among Top 10 teams that benefited most from transfer portal
Scott Frost knows he has to be successful in 2022. Because of the urgency, the Nebraska head coach has hit the NCAA transfer portal hard this offseason, bringing a ton of talent to Lincoln.
Nebraska has landed 11 players through the transfer portal this offseason. A lot of those players are expected to make immediate contributions for the Huskers in the 2022 season.
Ex-Texas quarterback Casey Thompson, former Oklahoma State offensive lineman Hunter Anthony, ex-Northern Iowa receiver Omar Brown and former Texas A&M running back Deondre Jackson are some of the most notable additions.
The Huskers also landed former LSU star Trey Palmer and ex-Arizona State cornerback Tommi Hill.
Because of all the new additions, ESPN ranked Nebraska as one of the Top 10 programs in college football that has benefited most from the transfer portal. It was the only B1G program to make the cut.
Nebraska was at No. 8 in the Top 10. Here’s just one comment ESPN had to say:
Frost’s additions via the portal, changes to the coaching staff and the younger players on the roster now having more experience should give Frost a shot at righting the ship at Nebraska.
Frost’s team finished the 2021 season with a 3-9 record, losing 8 games by one possession and all contests by single digits. Will the portal additions and staff changes be enough to get the Huskers back to the postseason?
