Dynamic transfer portal target to visit Nebraska football

Nebraska football has a new target from the transfer portal and it’s former Texas wideout Isaiah Neyor.

There was some interesting news reported earlier on Tuesday about the transfer portal pursuit of Jahmal Banks by Nebraska football.

After it was reported last week that Banks was going to visit Nebraska football this weekend, Callahan reported that the visit still wasn’t confirmed. It seemed like things were being slowed played by one of the two sides and now, we have a little more clarity.

That’s because Callahan of Husker Online is now reporting that Nebraska will host a transfer portal wide receiver this week, but that it’s not Banks, who could still visit. It’s Isaiah Neyor, the former Wyoming wideout who transferred to Texas before the 2022 season. He suffered an injury and just caught one pass in two seasons for the Longhorns.

What Isaiah Neyor would bring to Nebraska

The 6-foor-3, 210-pounder was highly sought after in the transfer portal following the 2021 season in which he caught 44 passes for 878 yards and 12 touchdowns. That’s an average of 20 yards per reception. Neyor could also have three years of eligibility if he wants.

His first season was in 2020, so he’s got the COVID year. Neyor played in 2021, then didn’t play at all in 2022. That could be his redshirt year, but he would seem to have a case for an extra year if he wanted. At the very least, he could play for two seasons and would look great catching passes from Dylan Raiola next season.

Nebraska football is searching for a No. 1 option or at least a proven veteran. Neyor maybe isn’t as proven as Banks, but he was electrifying at Wyoming. He’d also get the chance to be one of the top guys on the depth chart at Nebraska, which doesn’t have an established No. 1, so it seems like a good fit for both sides, especially since he’s a multi-year guy.

Banks is going to visit Michigan and as of now, since the Huskers seem more focused on Neyor, it feels like he’s the guy who’s going to wind up in this class, not Banks, which I’m fine with. I’d also be fine with the Huskers taking both but I’m not sure that’s in the cards.
