Mountain West program the destination for former Nebraska WR
Former Nebraska wide receiver Jamie Nance is heading to the Mountain West.
Friday night, Nance announced on social media that he has committed to play at Utah State. He is the second former B1G player to transfer into the Aggies football program, with ex-Michigan defensive back Hunter Reynolds making the same move back in April.
Nance decided to enter the NCAA transfer portal following the conclusion of spring ball in Lincoln. He’s been one of multiple Huskers to leave the program since the conclusion of the 2020 season, with Nebraska finishing 3-5.
Over the last two years, Nance has played in just one game at Nebraska.
As a high school recruit in the 2019 class, Nance was a highly-rated 3-star prospect, ranking No. 430 nationally. He was listed as the No. 25 athlete and No. 7 player out of Oklahoma, according to 247Sports. He received a dozen offers, picking Nebraska over TCU, Baylor, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Missouri, Notre Dame and Ole Miss at the Power 5 level.
Nance joins a Utah State team that finished the 2020 season with a 1-5 record. The Aggies won’t play a B1G opponent until the 2023 season, when they travel to Kinnick Stadium to face Iowa.
