The last transfer from Montana worked out pretty well for Nebraska, so the Huskers are dipping back into the Grizzlies’ ranks for some more much-needed help, this time in the form of a specialist.

On Tuesday, Nebraska secured a pledge from former Montana punter Brian Buschini. He was just named the FCS punter of the year and he’ll go on scholarship immediately at NU, according to multiple reports.

Buschini averaged 46 yards per punt during his redshirt freshman season for the Griz, a program record. According to, he had 28 punts of 50-plus yards, pinned 30 inside the 20-yard line in 69 attempts. He has 3 years of eligibility.

Nebraska moved quickly here. Buschini was named the FCS Punter of the Year Monday morning and an hour later tweeted that he’d put his name in the portal. Just a few hours after that, he announced that he’d received a scholarship offer from Nebraska. Now, 24 hours later, he’s committed to NU.

The Huskers have completely revamped their specialists this offseason as coach Scott Frost tries to right the ship. NU has added a new long-snapper, 2 new kickers—one of them a 5-star preferred walk-on and the other a scholarship transfer—and now a scholarship punter. Prior to this offseason, Nebraska coach Scott Frost had only awarded one immediate scholarship to an incoming specialist.

Buschini is the 2nd Montana player to transfer to Lincoln in as many seasons, following in the footsteps of wideout Samori Touré last offseason.
