A second outside linebacker in as many days is transferring from Nebraska’s football program.
A source with knowledge of the decision confirmed late Wednesday night that junior Quayshon Alexander is leaving NU’s football program. Alexander missed the 2018 football season while recovering from shoulder surgery. He appeared in the 2019 spring game — leading the way with seven tackles — and spoke to reporters afterward.
Alexander was part of NU’s 2016 recruiting class. A high three-star recruit, Alexander picked the Huskers over hometown Rutgers and Michigan. His brother, Kiy Hester, has a chance to be picked in this weekend’s NFL draft.
The move follows Breon Dixon’s departure from the programWednesday. NU now has eight scholarship outside linebackers on the roster, one of whom is a hybrid safety in JoJo Domann.
