For the second straight day, Nebraska lost a wideout to the transfer portal.
On Sunday, reserve wideout Jamie Nance announced he was entering the portal.

Nance was in his third year in Lincoln. A member of the 2019 recruiting class, he redshirted his first season and played in just one game—late during a blowout win over Maryland. He did not see the field in 2020.
His departure will mean every receiver recruited in that 2019 class will have transferred away from Nebraska. Demariyon Houston announced his intention to transfer on Saturday. Wan’Dale Robinson transferred to Kentucky earlier this year, and Darien Chase left for Portland State following his first year at Nebraska.
As a senior at Blanchard High School in Oklahoma, Nance caught 36 balls for 523 yards and nine scores. He also ran for 234 yards on 30 carries. He was also a dynamic weapon on punt and kick return for his high school. For his preps career, he totaled 107 catches for 1,884 yards and 21 touchdowns.
Derek is a newbie on the Hail Varsity staff covering Husker athletics. In college, he was best known as ‘that guy from Twitter.’ He has covered a Sugar Bowl, a tennis national championship and almost everything in between (except an NCAA men’s basketball tournament game… *tears*). In his spare time, he can be found arguing with literally anyone about sports.
