Report: Nebraska DB becomes latest freshman out of Florida to enter transfer portal
Nebraska’s Thanksgiving weekend just took another hit.
Things were bad enough Friday as the Huskers dropped their sixth straight in the Heroes Game rivalry against Iowa. Scott Frost and company did find themselves in a great opportunity late to go for what could have been a go-ahead touchdown, but a fateful turnover ended the game with a 26-20 Hawkeye victory.
Later Friday evening, it was also reported that freshman defensive back Ronald Delancy III has entered the transfer portal. Delancy originally joined the Huskers as a three-star DB out of Miami with offers from Louisville, FIU, and FAU, among others.
What makes Delancy’s reported jump even more troublesome is he is now the fourth member of Nebraska’s 2020 class specifically from Florida to hit the portal:
Not only did Nebraska fall to 1-4 today, the Huskers lost another freshman. The @Freepsports has learned Nebraska DB Ronald Delancy III has entered the NCAA transfer portal. He's the fourth member of the 2020 class from Florida to leave the program this year.

With his time at UCF and ties to the southeast, the ability to recruit the state of Florida was a good selling point on what Frost brings to the table. However, if he is unable to keep those recruits in Lincoln, that will be a bad sign for future recruiting endeavors.
