“I’ve decided it’s in my best interest to enter my name into the transfer portal as a graduate transfer with three years of eligibility,” he wrote in the announcement.
Alston did not appear in a game through three seasons with Nebraska.
Originally from St. Paul, Minn., Alston was a 3-star prospect in the 2018 recruiting class. According to 247Sports Composite rankings, Alston was the No. 33 weak side defensive end in the country.
Alston originally committed to Nebraska during the Mike Riley era, but decided to stick with Nebraska after Scott Frost was hired.
He chose the Huskers over offers from Iowa State, Air Force, Utah, Wisconsin and others.
Alston redshirted in 2018 and, like all college athletes, received an additional year of eligibility in 2020 due to the pandemic. That means he still has three years remaining at his next program.
