(Lincoln, NE) -- Three Husker football players are leaving the program.
On Tuesday, redshirt freshman back up quarterback Luke McCaffrey, junior wide receiver Kade Warner and sophomore offensive lineman Will Farniok entered the NCAA transfer portal.
McCaffrey, who Coach Scott Frost has said was the future at quarterback for Nebraska, played in seven of the eight games last season. He threw for 48 of 76 passes for 466 yards with one touchdown. On the ground he rushed 65 times for 364 yards and three touchdowns, making him third on the team in rushing yards.
“After struggling with this decision for weeks, I have decided to enter the transfer portal and explore my options. I am thankful for the support Nebraska fans have shown me. I have so much love for my coaches and teammates from my time here. I am excited for the future,” McCaffrey said.
Warner became a captain last season after earning a scholarship as a walk-on. He had five catches for 40 yards, but Kade was known for his leadership off the field. Farniok played one game last season, seeing action at center against Ohio State in the opener. He wasn’t expected to earn a starting job this off season, but his departure leaves a hole in the number backups.
