Nebraska Football: Huskers Gain Colorado Lineman via Transfer

James Snook-US PRESSWIRE

The loss of Spencer Long following the 2013 season may not sting as badly thanks to work by John Garrison and the Nebraska staff,

After recently contacting Nebraska coaches, Colorado junior left guard Alex Lewis made his transfer announcement official today. A two-year starter, the 6'6" 285-pound offensive lineman began his career at tackle, but eventually moved to the interior for the Buffaloes, an area where Nebraska can use all the stability it can get.

His name may ring a bell as he is the son of former Husker All-American center Bill Lewis. While battling injuries over his career, Lewis is easily one of the Buffaloes' best linemen and will leave a major hole in both Colorado's offensive line and any hope of offensive improvement this season.

Lewis' addition to the Huskers' roster may help ease the loss of All-American guard Spencer Long following the 2013 season and lessen the need for Nebraska to target another JUCO offensive lineman next recruiting cycle. Following his mandatory year on the sidelines due to transfer, Lewis will have two years of eligibility remaining.
