Another outside linebacker is set to leave Nebraska. Junior linebacker Quayshon Alexander plans to leave the Huskers and place his name in the NCAA transfer portal, a source confirmed to Hail Varsity on Thursday.
Alexander becomes the second outside linebacker to move on from Nebraska, following Breon Dixon’s departure announcement on Wednesday. Alexander has yet to publicly announce his decision to leave.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pound linebacker did not appear in a game during his three years with Nebraska. He suffered a season-ending injury during the offseason in 2018, but returned in time to participate in spring ball. However, he never made a big enough jump on the Nebraska depth chart.
The departure is now the third since the April 13 spring game for Nebraska. Alexander followers both Dixon and senior punter Caleb Lightbourn. Lightbourn announced his intent to transfer on April 16.
Nebraska is also even thinner now at the linebacker position heading into the summer and fall. Seniors Alex Davis and Tyrin Ferguson and sophomore Caleb Tannor are the only true outside backers on scholarship with real playing experience. Nebraska also has JoJo Domann, who moved down to outside backer last season and found a home there this spring.
