Nebraska Offensive Lineman Matthew Anderson Enters Name in Transfer Portal

January 06, 2021

Offensive lineman Matthew Anderson has put his name in the transfer portal. Hail Varsity confirmed the news about the redshirt freshman’s departure, which broke Wednesday morning.

He is the second non-senior from Nebraska to depart since the 2020 season ended. Junior defensive lineman Keem Green previously placed his name in the transfer portal in late December.

Anderson, a standout at Leesville High School in Louisiana, was part of the Huskers’ 2019 recruiting class. He was a 3-star prospect, per 247Sports, and was listed among the 70 offensive tackles in the country at the time. He chose Nebraska over offers from Louisiana Tech, Louisiana, Western Kentucky and more.

Anderson, who stood at 6-foot-6 and 255 pounds, had yet to take a snap at Nebraska. He redshirted his first season in 2019 and did not appear in a game in 2020. He was projected as a tackle for the Huskers, but would have had to beat out true freshman Turner Corcoran and redshirt freshman Bryce Benhart for playing time.

He is the third member of the 2019 class to depart the team, alongside Green and receiver Darien Chase.
