Nebraska’s football program has landed a transfer from a Big Ten rival this morning, adding a former Michigan State special teams player to its roster. The transfer was announced on social media.
William Przystup, a punter out of Michigan State, announced on Twitter his transfer to Nebraska. The special teamer had announced his intentions to transfer out of the Spartans’ program in early January.
“Excited and honored to announce my transfer to the University of Nebraska. Blessed to become part of @HuskerFBNation and this talented program. Go Big Red!” he tweeted.

MLive.com had details on the punter’s transfer back in January:
Przystup, a true freshman walk-on from Oviedo High School in Florida, played in four games this season as Michigan State battled injuries at punter. Because he appeared in fewer than five games, a new NCAA rule allows him to take a redshirt for the season and he will have four years of eligibility remaining. He made his college debut in Michigan State’s Nov. 10 loss to Ohio State.
“He’s a guy that was fourth in line there and I thought he did an outstanding job for us, a tremendous job, sort of being put on stage in the Ohio State game to start with,” Dantonio said.
Nebraska dealt with some special teams issues throughout Scott Frost’s first season in Lincoln, so getting some help at the punting position is big moving forward.
The Huskers are entering the 2019 season with some serious optimism.
Nebraska is coming off a 4-8 season, but most preseason top 25 polls are including the Huskers.
