Former Nebraska running back Greg Bell has found a landing spot to complete his academic and athletic career.
Bell told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he was transferring to San Diego State and planned to enroll in the summer session in hopes of being immediately eligible for the 2019 season. The running back decided to leave Lincoln midway through the season.
At that point in the year, Bell had fallen to third on the depth chart, behind Devine Ozigbo and Maurice Washington. He was the starter for the first three games of the year before being leapfrogged at the position.
Head coach Scott Frost restricted Bell from transferring to Oregon State, where four other Huskers transferred to last season. At the time, former Nebraska head coach Mike Riley was an assistant coach on the Beavers’ staff.
Bell had 35 rushing attempts for 173 yards last year for the Huskers. He also had four receptions for an additional 14 yards.
Bell is a native of the San Diego area, so joining the Aztecs will be somewhat of a homecoming for the running back. He came to Nebraska as a member of the 2018 recruiting class as a junior college transfer, coming from Arizona Western College. Bell is a former three-star prospect.
