It's been a frustrating season for just about everyone in Lincoln amidst Nebraska's recent struggles. But one Huskers player has decided he'd like to continue playing elsewhere.

According to Husker247, redshirt freshman wide receiver Miles Jones is entering the NCAA transfer portal. The decision comes amidst a season where he's hardly been used despite many young players getting reps.

He did not see the field during Nebraska's 38-31 loss to Indiana this past weekend.

247Sports rated Jones as a three-star prospect and the No. 576 overall prospect in the country in 2018. He was the No. 44 athlete in the nation, and the No. 90 prospect from the state of Florida.

Jones initially committed to Vanderbilt in 2017 before decommitting from the Commodores and flipping to Nebraska following an official visit in 2018.

But his true freshman season was cut short last year after a shoulder injury that ultimately required surgery. He had five rushing yards and 21 receiving yards against Bethune-Cookman for his only stats in 2018.

Nebraska dropped to 4-4 following Saturday's loss to Indiana.
