The Nebraska Cornhuskers are heading into the 2018 season with a ton of hype following the hire of new coach Scott Frost, and everyone wants to be a part of the magic.

Even Alec Cromer, a former quarterback at South Dakota State, wants to head to Lincoln. However, as he transfers to Nebraska, he won’t do so as a quarterback.

According to, Cromer will head to Nebraska as a walk-on punter instead of a quarterback:

“Yes, that’s right,” Cromer said. “I’ll be walking on at Nebraska. I’ve been talking with (Scott) Frost about it. I plan to walk-on as a punter.”

That, interestingly, will give the Huskers an interesting option on punts, as Cromer was a talented high school quarterback.

Cromer redshirted for the Jackrabbits in 2016 and didn’t play in 2017. He’ll have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2018 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
