Huskers Add Long Snapper From Miami, Eligible Immediately

In a position where Nebraska has lost their only scholarship player, the Huskers add on a much needed insurance policy.

HuskerOnline/Rivals reporter Sean Callahan has reported today that the Nebraska Cornhuskers have added on former Miami Hurricanes Long Snapper Paul Kelly to the roster and he will be eligible immediately.

Sam McKewon of the Omaha World Herald got confirmation from the school.

Kelly, who is a Senior and graduated from Miami back in December, is a Graduate Transfer that would be immediately able to help the Huskers out. The Huskers and Canes clash in Lincoln on September 20th.

Kelly, according to his University of Miami bio, played in 23 games for the Canes as a long snapper, primarily on field goal and PAT attempts. He played all 13 games last season for Al Golden's team.

The Huskers have been missing Long Snapper Gabe Miller, who is on scholarship, since the beginning of the Camp season with a undisclosed injury. Nebraska had been using both walk-on Josh Faulkenberry and Safety Nathan Gerry on long snapping all camp.

There are several scholarships available, so therefore Nebraska can afford one if Miller is unable to come back this season.
