JD Spielman is heading to TCU for his senior year. He will be able to play for the Horned Frogs this season as his waiver request to play immediately in 2020 has already been granted. Spielman, who entered the transfer portal more than a month ago, posted a third straight 800-yard plus season as a junior for the Huskers. Spielman took part in winter conditioning in Lincoln, but then took a leave of absence before spring ball started and never returned to team activities after the coronavirus pandemic shut down spring ball.
Marques Buford, a three-star athlete from Texas, announced his commitment to the Huskers Saturday. The 6-foot, 190-pound defensive back had nearly 30 offers, choosing the Huskers over the likes of Texas A&M, Washington State, Arizona, Cal, Florida State, Iowa State and Ole Miss. He becomes the 13th known verbal commit for Nebraska’s 2021 recruiting class.
Husker senior Jack Stoll has been named to the watch list for the John Mackey Award, which is presented annually to the nations top tight end. Now a three-time member of the Mackey Award watch list, Stoll is one of 36 players on the preseason watch list.
Freshman Nebraska defensive back Jaiden Francois has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal on Friday. The 6-foot-1, 182-pound Francois joins fellow Miami freshman DB Henry Gray as members of the 2020 recruiting class that have already entered their names in the portal. Both Gray and Francois were early enrollees that arrived to NU’s campus in January.
