A former Cal wide receiver has decided to finish his college football career in the B1G.
On Sunday, Kanawai Noa announced through Instagram that he would be finishing his athletic career at Nebraska. As a graduate transfer, he’ll be immediately eligible for the Huskers and has one year of eligibility remaining.
Parker Gabriel of Husker Extra shared Noa’s post on Twitter.

Noa was a member of Cal’s 2015 recruiting class and contributed immediately as a true freshman. He appeared in all 13 games for the Bears that season, primarily on special teams. In addition to hauling in seven receptions for 76 yards, he also had four kickoff returns and four punt returns.
In his sophomore season, Noa appeared in three games before suffering a season-ending injury. The 2016 campaign served as his redshirt season.
Over the last two seasons at Cal, Noa has recorded 86 receptions for 1,157 yards and six touchdowns. Last fall, he had 30 catches for 369 yards and two scores in nine contests.
Noa could step into an immediate role as a contributor for the Huskers, which lost leading receiver Stanley Morgan Jr. to graduation. Noa will also have one last game against the Pac-12, as Nebraska takes on Colorado on Sept. 7.
