Nebraska’s secondary is losing a little depth.
Mitch Sherman of The Athletic has reported that cornerback Tony Butler has entered his name into the NCAA transfer database. He appeared in four games for the Huskers in the 2019 season, making one tackle. He had two stops during his career with Nebraska.
Butler appeared in 27 career games for the Huskers over the last three years, primarily on special teams. He also saw reps in the secondary.

Butler has graduated from Nebraska and has one year of eligibility remaining. Wherever he decides to play, he will be immediately eligible to participate in the 2020 season.
Butler was a two-time Academic All-B1G selection (2018, 2019) and a three-time member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team. There was no indication of where Butler would be interested in landing.
