Nebraska Cornhuskers News: Arik Gilbert is N, Malachi Coleman hint, more

The Nebraska Cornhuskers football team got itself one last talented transfer player out of the portal. Lucky number 10 was none other than the tight end it has been trying to land for the last few weeks. And while the Nebraska football team couldn’t land Brett Seither from Georgia, it was able to land his teammate Arik Gilbert.

Gilbert, like Seither didn’t get a ton of playing time for Georgia though it’s possible he’s actually the better of the two transfers. The reason he hasn’t seen much playing time since deciding to play between the hedges is that he’s had some injury problems. In 2020, when he played for LSU, he did show flashes of being an impact player.

He’ll join teammate MJ Sherman on the Nebraska Cornhuskers and fans of the program will hope that both former members of the two-time National Championship squad can be immediate impact players in Lincoln.
