The Huskers have added an intriguing wide receiver transfer from the FCS ranks.
Nebraska got good news on Monday when former Montana wide receiver Samori Touré announced that he would be joining the team. He shared the decision on Twitter.

Touré will arrive in Lincoln this month with some impressive credentials. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound wideout had a sensational junior season. He racked up 82 catches for 1,495 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. It’s a big accomplishment any time that you put your name alongside Randy Moss. That’s what Touré did when he had 303 yards against Southeastern Louisiana. That was good enough to surpass a longstanding record held by Moss.
The Washington native is a good addition for the Huskers. The team is still searching for consistent weapons on offense. The program has continues to be active in the transfer portal market. Coach Scott Frost alluded to that during his signing day press conference.
“I do expect to add at least one, probably more than that by February,” Frost said. “We always like to keep a spot or two in our back pocket in case a special player turns up that we might be able to get to add to the team at a position of need. Love the group we have, I don’t expect that we’re done.”
Touré checks the boxes of being a special player that plays a position of need. He was a 2019 Associated Press Third Team All-American. Nebraska has spots available that count towards the 2021 class. It makes sense that the Huskers would continue adding weapons for quarterback Adrian Martinez. The transfer pass catcher plan to enroll at semester. It will be in time to take part in winter conditioning and spring practice.
