Nebraska Football and Coach Matt Rhule have been saying a lot about the prospect of bringing in a transfer quarterback as of late.
Amidst tracking flights, and monitoring social media accounts for new followers, Las Vegas is favoring a top coveted talent to be coming to Lincoln soon.
Nebraska Football potential quarterback exchange program
Years ago, Adrian Martinez transferred from Lincoln to Manhattan to help guide the 2022 Wildcats to a Big 12 Championship. After falling to injury during the championship run, Will Howard stepped in to steady the ship.
Now as a graduate transfer, with one year of eligibility remaining, Howard has three schools that look to be a realistic landing spot for him.

Nebraska Football coach stance on bringing in a transfer
With many believing that simply competent quarterback play would have easily led to a bowl birth, it is little wonder that this Nebraska Football staff is exploring all avenues for the position group for next year.
While Coach Rhule has made it clear that his focus will be on recruiting and developing high school players, he has said that the right fit would always be a welcomed addition. He has stated that his preference would be for transfer athletes with multiple years of eligibility left, or an immediate impact player.

Considering his slew of suitors including, Wisconsin, Miami, and Lincoln Riley personally from USC it’s safe to say that Will Howard qualifies as an immediate impact player.
Coach Rhule has stated that he is happy with the current quarterback room, and has said nothing but good things about the potential of Chubba Purdy, this Nebraska Football staff is leaving no stone unturned and doing everything possible to get as much talent as possible on the offense.
Not only have reports surfaced of this staff visiting Howard, but there have also been reported sit downs with Sam Leavitt, Kyle McCord, and Cam Ward.
