A former Nebraska football player has found a new home. On Friday, offensive lineman Will Farniok announced that he transferred to Tulsa. He made the announcement on social media.
He entered the portal back on January 26, and is a sophomore in terms of eligibility. He spent the last two seasons for Nebraska as a reserve center for the program. He mostly spent time backing up Cam Jurgens. He did see a little bit of action, appearing in the Ohio State game last season.
Nebraska does have some young options on the line. Bryce Benhart and Ethan Piper as well as Turner Corcoran should help provide stability on the line. After a veteran-laden line last season, that will not be the case this year. Nebraska will have to rely on some of the other young players to take a step forward.
I am happy Farniok finally have found a home. As we are seeing throughout the course of the past couple of weeks, some players who enter the transfer portal end up taking a big gamble. They do not end up finding a home, and then they are left with closing their college football career. As much as I would’ve loved to have seen Farniok stay at Nebraska, he did end up with a team, which is certainly a great thing to see.
The Nebraska football offensive line is certainly set for the future. I personally think he made the right choice in transferring, as he probably would not have gotten a ton of playing time next year. This is a situation that worked out well for both parties, and I am thrilled to see it work out that way. Hopefully, he will be able to make an impact for Tulsa, and help the program succeed.
As the Nebraska football roster gets a bit more clarity for next season, hopefully we’ll see players begin to emerge and separate themselves during the spring. With competition at multiple positions, this could be one of the more entertaining spring practice timeframes in recent memory.
