Two more names have entered the transfer portal on Tuesday following the news that quarterback Luke McCaffrey intends to transfer from Nebraska. Hail Varsity confirmed that both wide receiver Kade Warner and offensive lineman Will Farniok have also placed their names in the transfer portal.
Warner, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound junior from Scottsdale, Arizona, walked on at Nebraska in 2017 before earning a scholarship in 2020. He was voted one of Nebraska’s captains for the 2020 season, making him the first Husker captain to transfer since quarterback Joe Dailey did so following the 2004 season.
While he played in every game in 2020, his playing time dwindled as the season progressed. After starting four games early, he only say 12 total snaps of action over the Huskers’ final three games of the season. He ended the year with five catches for 40 yards. He leaves Nebraska having seen action in 24 games and finishing with 30 catches for 236 yards.

After redshirting in 2018, Farniok saw a total of 56 snaps of action in four games over two season in 2019 and 2020. That included the 2020 season opener against Ohio State.

Farniok is the third offensive lineman to depart from Nebraska following the 2020 season. He joins Matthew Anderson (who transferred to Louisiana) and Boe Wilson (who transferred to Western Kentucky). His older brother Matt also left the program after five seasons, declaring for the 2021 NFL Draft.
