Nebraska's wide receiver depth has taken a hit. One of the Huskers' wide receivers announced today that he's transferring out of the program.

Keyan Williams, a senior wide receiver, announced on Twitter that he's been granted a release from his scholarship. He said it was the most-difficult decision he's ever had to make.

The 5-foot-10, 195-pound wide receiver is graduating from Nebraska this year. He'll be eligible to play somewhere else a a grad transfer in 2018.

Here's his full announcement:

Williams is a New Orleans, La. native. He first played at Fresno State.

The wide receiver transferred to Nebraska after two seasons with the Bulldogs. He had 7 career catches at Fresno State.

His father, Keith Williams, was the wide receivers coach for the Huskers before Scott Frost took over the program.

It's unclear where Keyan will look to transfer. Stay tuned.
