Nebraska Safety Myles Farmer Enters Transfer Portal Amid Current Suspension

August 02, 2023

Suspended Nebraska safety Myles Farmer has entered the transfer portal, reports indicated on Wednesday morning.

Nebraska head coach Matt Rhule said following Monday’s preseason practice that Farmer was suspended at the end of summer for “simple things, nothing major,” pertaining to the program’s standards. Farmer was not on the team’s 120-man roster at that time. Rhule followed up Farmer’s situation, calling it day to day.

“We’ll see what happens with Myles,” Rhule said on Monday. “The ball is in his court. Love him to be here but whatever he wants to do, I respect him as a man. So whatever he decides, I understand.”

Farmer started 15 of the program’s last 16 games dating back to 2021. The only game he’s missed came last year against Michigan, which he was suspended for following a citation for suspected driving under the influence. Still, he finished second on the team last season with 73 tackles. He compiled 112 total tackles in 26 games throughout his four seasons as a Husker.

Nebraska’s former starting safety is the first public entry into the transfer portal since the spring window closed. The Huskers have practiced without him the first three days of preseason camp with Quinton Newsome, Isaac Gifford, DeShon Singleton, Phalen Sanford, Omar Brown, Javier Morton, Malcolm Hartzog and Tommi Hill all with game experience. Corey Collier, Ethan Nation, Syncere Safeeullah, Dwight Bootle II and Rahmir Stewart are all new arrivals to the room. Collier, a transfer from Florida, will likely step in to take significant snaps this fall.
