LB Will Honas sends out farewell message to Nebraska
Will Honas has made it official. After spending four seasons at Nebraska, he’ll be playing his final year of college football elsewhere.
Sean Callahan of HuskerOnline.com reported on Monday that Honas had entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. The linebacker, who missed the 2021 season because of an injury, will be entering his seventh season of college football.
Not long after the report surfaced, Honas fired off a farewell message to Nebraska.
“It’s been an honor to rep the N and be a part of the Blackshirt defense for the past four years,” Honas wrote. “Thank you to my teammates, coaches, support staff and Nebraska faithful for helping me create memories and relationships that will last a lifetime.
“This is not an easy decision because of how special it is to play for the University of Nebraska, but I will be entering the transfer portal with my last year of eligibility.”

Honas arrived at Nebraska in 2018, Scott Frost’s first season as the head coach of the program. Prior to landing in Lincoln, the linebacker spent two years at Butler Community College.
During his time with the Huskers, the linebacker has racked up 145 tackles, 12 for loss and 4 sacks. He’s played in 23 career games.
Honas is also a two-time Academic All-B1G selection and was an All-B1G Honorable Mention following the 2020 season. He will have one year of eligibility remaining at his next destination.
During the 2020 season, Honas put together his best season with the Huskers in just 8 games. He amassed 57 stops and a career-high 6.5 tackles for loss and 3 sacks. Honas was expected to be a key piece to the Nebraska defense in 2021 before suffering the season-ending injury.
