The 6-foot-3, 209-pound redshirt sophomore amassed 1,262 yards and 10 touchdowns without an interception this season. Gibson arrived at Akron as an unheralded prospect, ranking as the No. 2,258 overall player in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite.
The Cornhuskers, who enter next season with a new offensive coordinator in Mark Whipple, are seeking to add quarterback options after long-time starter Adrian Martinez entered the transfer portal.
Nebraska finished 3-9 overall and sixth place in the B1G West. The Cornhuskers ended on a six-game losing streak, most recently dropping a 28-21 contest vs. then-No. 16 Iowa. Nebraska’s last victory came vs. Northwestern on Oct. 2.
