Ex-Huskers WR Kade Warner commits to Big 12 program
Former Nebraska wide receiver Kade Warner has found a new home.
Monday evening, Warner announced that he has committed to Kansas State to finish his career in college football. He made the announcement with a post on Twitter.
“New beginnings, same passion,” Warner wrote on social media. “I am excited to commit to [Kansas State football].”

Warner spent three seasons at Nebraska and began his career as a walk-on before earning a scholarship. He played in 16 games over the course of three seasons in Lincoln and played in four during the 2020 season. Warner totaled 30 catches for 236 yards and had 1 carry for 4 yards while with the Huskers.
A former team captain, it was a bit surprising when Warner announced his decision to enter the transfer portal. He entered his name into the database around the same time wide receiver/running back Wan’Dale Robinson and quarterback Luke McCaffrey also decided to leave the program.
Robinson is headed to Kentucky and McCaffrey is going to Louisville.
Kansas State ended the 2020 season with a 4-6 record. It was the second season under Chris Klieman, who took over as head coach after a successful run with North Dakota State at the FCS level.
