Husker Walk-On Ethan Cox to Enter Transfer Portal

Another former Nebraska walk-on is in the NCAA transfer portal looking for a new school.

Ethan Cox, a cornerback who played 11 games in 2018 but missed last season due to injuries, confirmed to The World-Herald that he is seeking a new school. He is no longer listed on Nebraska’s 2020 football roster.

The 5-foot-10, 195-pound Cox was part of 2017’s smaller-but-productive walk-on class that included starting left guard Trent Hixson and starting wide receiver Kade Warner. Cox redshirted in 2017 before playing a major role on special teams in 2018, finishing with three tackles.

A standout prep star for Blair High School, Cox passed for 3,953 yards and ran for more than 950 yards in three seasons for the Bears. He turned down an offer to play quarterback at UNK in order to walk on at NU.

In recent months, contributing walk-ons like Isaiah Stalbird, Andrew Bunch and Dylan Jorgensen have transferred from Nebraska in search of more playing time.
