"Six Huskers entered the transfer portal as of Wednesday, per a source, as the team conducts individual meetings and players prepare to scatter for summer-ball assignments. Departing players are infielder Jack Steil, outfielders Tyler Palmer and Leighton Banjoff and pitchers Braxton Bragg, Ethan Bradford and Quinn Mason.
“We’ve got to evaluate from a roster management standpoint what it’s supposed to look like and from a recruiting standpoint, from a coaching standpoint, all of it,” coach Will Bolt said Saturday after the end of the program’s 23-30 campaign that left NU short of qualifying for the Big Ten tournament."
"Bragg, a junior from Kansas City, had the most prominent role this season. The right-hander settled in as the closer and saved a squad-best five games while compiling a 3.28 ERA and striking out 37 with eight walks in 35.2 innings. Banjoff — Nebraska’s regular left fielder — announced Tuesday on social media he would be transferring. The junior started 38 games and hit .233."
