It's late, which means this is important, and another blow to the Huskers next year.
Pretty simple release accompanies that statement:
MyValleySports.com has learned that Cardinal Mooney product Braylon Heard is transferring out of the Nebraska Football program.
Sources say Heard wants to play closer to home. It's not known which school he'll transfer to. Heard spent two seasons with the Cornhuskers with the last one being his most productive.
Heard, the 5' 11" Junior to be from Cardinal Mooney HS in Youngstown, OH., had an average of 6.7 yards per carry over 52 carries for the Huskers this past season, as he saw action in 12 games for Nebraska in the 2012 campaign.
This leaves Ameer Abdullah and Imani Cross as the only two returning RB's that have in-game experience. The Huskers are expecting to have both Terrell Newby and Adam Taylor in this year's recruiting cycle.
Heard last spring moved to Cornerback during spring practice, but returned to Running Back this fall and had a productive season being behind Ameer as Rex Burkhead was injured through the season.
With the decommitment of Marcus McWilson and the reported transfer of Heard, that makes two Cardinal Mooney kids that have distanced themselves from the program in as many days. This also brings the "Three Amigos" stable of 2011 commitments down to one, as Aaron Green left the program last off-season to TCU.
