NU reserve linebacker Alexander set to transfer


Another day, another linebacker leaving Nebraska. 

Junior Quayshon Alexander will transfer from the Huskers, according to a Journal Star source. 

HuskerOnline first reported Alexander's intention to put his name in the NCAA's transfer portal. 

Alexander, an outside linebacker, missed all of 2018 with an injury and never appeared in a game for the Huskers. 

Alexander has not yet announced the move and the school has not confirmed it. 

The news comes one day after sophomore outside linebacker Breon Dixon announced his intention to transfer.

Alexander returned from an unspecified season-ending injury that cost him all of last year and participated in spring ball, but never made a run up the depth chart. 

The Huskers currently show a top outside linebacker group of Alex Davis, Tyrin Ferguson, JoJo Domann and Caleb Tannor. 

This story will be updated.

Nebraska sophomore Adrian Martinez is regarded as a rising star in the college game. Husker fans can’t get enough of him. But that doesn’t mean he has it easy with his quarterbacks coach at NU. “I just drive him nuts about his feet,” says Mario Verduzco, referring to Martinez’s footwork as a passer. “He thinks I’m, like, totally out of my mind.” In a good way, of course.
