Nebraska football has been “aggressive” in its pursuit of transfer quarterbacks plus more Cornhuskers news.

It remains to be seen if Nebraska football can land a top-ranked quarterback in the transfer portal, but there’s no doubt that the Huskers aren’t sitting idly by.

In fact, according to Pete Nakos of, Nebraska football has been the most aggressive team of any in the college football transfer portal in terms of trying to land a quarterback. Here’s what Nakos said to Husker Online about Nebraska’s portal pursuits: 

“I know we’re only three days into the 30-day transfer portal window, but Nebraska has arguably been the most aggressive team searching for a quarterback,” notes Pete Nakos, an expert in both the transfer portal and NIL for “Marcus Satterfield and Matt Rhule are not sitting around and watching the dominoes fall. They’re pulling out all the stops to get their guy. Now time will only tell how it all shakes out, but it’s hard to not be impressed by the aggression.”

Jeff Sims hits the portal

We don’t know who will be the starting quarterback for Nebraska next fall. But we do know that it won’t be Jeff Sims. The transfer from Georgia Tech will re-enter the transfer portal. He’s expected to graduate from Nebraska so he’ll be eligible to play right away wherever he goes.

Sims completed just 59.6 percent of his passes this season and had one touchdown to go along with six interceptions, as well as a bunch of fumbles.

Nebraska volleyball to face Georgia Tech in Sweet 16

The Huskers quest for a volleyball national championship continues on Thursday against 12th-ranked Georgia Tech at 1 PM CST on ESPN2. The Yellow Jackets are the No. 5 seed in the region and upset Florida 3-2 to advance to the Regional semifinal against Nebraska volleyball.

Nebraska volleyball is making its 12th consecutive appearance in the Sweet 16. However, the Huskers, who are the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament, have much bigger goals.

First, they need to take care of business against Georgia Tech. Nebraska boasts six all-region players: Merritt Beason, Harper Murray, Lexi Rodriguez, Bergen Reilly, Andi Jackson, and Bekka Allick.

Yet, Georgia Tech has a pair of all-region outside hitters in Tamara Otene and Biana Bertolino. Georgia Tech hits .251 as a team but allows opponents to hit just .182. The Huskers are hitting .281 in addition to an elite defense that allows just a .140 hitting percentage.

The winner of Georgia Tech and Nebraska will take on Arkansas or Kentucky in the Regional Final in Lincoln on Saturday at 5 PM CST.
