Northwestern State is an FCS program in Natchitoches, Louisiana. It's the same program that linebacker Jaevon Walton, Irons' high school teammate and fellow 2014 Nebraska signee, is part of.

Mike Riley did not specify why Irons was no longer in the Husker program in a press release on June 25. Though diminutive, the 5-foot-9, 155-pound Irons had a productive spring in Lincoln, and had seemed poised to contribute as a redshirt freshman this fall.

Irons and Walton were joined by wide receiver Jariah Tolbert as prospects from Edna Karr High School in New Orleans to sign with Nebraska last year. NU also parted ways with Tolbert in early June.

Tolbert, who had some off-the-field issues while in Lincoln, reportedly has signed on to play JUCO ball at Arizona Western, the same school that produced Randy Gregory and current Husker linebacker commit William Johnson.

None of the three Edna Karr teammates ended up playing a snap for Nebraska, though the Huskers do still have a representative of the high school on roster in true freshman Tyrin Ferguson.
