Nebraska Football is about to better their Wide Receiving group in a big, big way.
Stringfellow didn't have much of a huge impact in his Freshman season, however his breakthrough game came against UCLA back on November 15th. A large game where he went off for 8 catches and 147 yards with a TD showed the type of talent he has. That made up for most of his 20 catch, 259 yard output through the entire season.
You can get a glimpse of his most recent game, the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl vs. BYU.
Stringfellow was originally a 4 star, 94 composite from Rancho Verde HS in Moreno Park out of High School. He was the 8th best WR in the '13 class, and 7th best player in California overall according to 247 sports.
Nebraska was the only non-West Coast school that Stringfellow seemed interested in during his recruitment. That relationship with WR assistant coach Rich Fisher has seemed to pay off.
No word yes if Stringfellow will attempt to obtain a waiver to play immediately, however more than likely, he'll have to sit out a season due to NCAA transfer restrictions. This would give him 3 seasons to play at Nebraska, however could also mean he may only play one season due to NFL Draft rules requiring a player to be out of High School 3 years.
This also is the reason you saw all these tweets yesterday after the Kieron Williams verbal...

Let the record show that John Papuchis is not a fan of East Coast bias.
