I didn’t see it coming either but would argue it’s probably a good move for both Will and Nebraska. He had some good games at Memorial and wish him the best.
Maybe you are right. But he was the leading tackler on the team over the 2019 and 2020 seasons combined. Huge loss imo.
He was a loss going into ‘21, no doubt.
His absence and the subsequent elevation of Reimers and Heinrich put him at #3, best case. Add in Kolarevic, a couple of even more athletic ILB’s pushing for playing time and the possibility that he won’t be 100% after the knee injury and I think it was an up hill battle for him.
