With the summer quickly approaching, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have made sizable changes to their roster. The program trimmed its roster earlier this week.
The Cornhuskers will enter this upcoming season with the hope that they'll recapture their success down the stretch in 2018. Obviously the team's record didn't indicate that it's heading in the right direction, but winning four out of the last six games is certainly an improvement.
Most signs point to things looking up for Nebraska, but it did receive its share of unfortunate news this week as well.
Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Heraldis reporting that four scholarship players for Nebraska have submitted their name into the NCAA transfer portal.
The four players looking to transfer are Caleb Lightbourn, Quayshon Alexander, Breon Dixon and Cam'ron Jones.
Losing Dixon and Jones is brutal for the Cornhuskers considering they were both four-star recruits. As for Lightbourn and Alexander, they're hoping to find more playing time with their next team.
McKewon also revealed that several walk-ons will leave the program, cutting the roster down to 149 players.
The belief is that Nebraska will add 24 walk-ons over the course of the summer.
Either way, it's clear that changes will continue to occur for the Cornhuskers as they prepare for their second season under head coach Scott Frost.
