Nebraska junior TE enters name into NCAA transfer portal
After four seasons in Lincoln, a Nebraska tight end has decided to explore other options.
Sean Callahan of Rivals.com reported on Wednesday that redshirt junior tight end Kurt Rafdal has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. The 6-foot-7, 245-pound Indiana native looks for new opportunities after playing in 26 career games for the Huskers.
Rafdal played in all 12 games during the 2018 season, making 4 catches for 67 yards. Over the last two seasons, he totaled 2 receptions for 10 yards. He appeared in 14 contests, including all 8 during the 2020 season.

Rafdal was a 3-star member of Nebraska’s 2017 recruiting class. He was ranked as a Top 10 prospect out of Indiana and the No. 32 tight end in the cycle. Overall, Rafdal was listed just outside the Top 700.
Though he’s been in Lincoln for four seasons, he’ll still have two years of eligibility to use. He was redshirted in 2017 and the NCAA is granting an additional year of eligibility for all student-athletes in the fall.
Rafdal could still return to Nebraska if it is in his best interest.
