It appears that third-year sophomore Nebraska offensive lineman Bryan Brokop will join quarterback Patrick O’Brien and fullback Ben Miles in transferring out of the program this spring.

Brokop has updated his Twitter profile to include “former Nebraska football player.”

The 6-foot-5, 295-pounder, who starred at Lincoln-Way West in New Lenox, Illinois, added depth to the offensive line in 2017 but never appeared in a game. He redshirted in 2016.

In high school, he was ranked among the top 25 offensive guards in the country by both and, while 247Sports ranked him among the nation's top 400 prospects.

By the Journal Star's count, Nebraska would now stand at 86 scholarship players, one over the 85 limit the program must reach by the end of the summer.
