The Nebraska football team will have a new addition to its offensive line group. As Ezra Miller has announced he will be leaving the Iowa football program and joining the Huskers.
Miller was the first to commit to Iowa’s 2019 recruiting class as a high-school sophomore.
On Wednesday the former four-star offensive lineman announced on social media he will join the Huskers as a walk-on according to the Omaha World Herald.
The 6-foot-6, 310-pound product of Holstein, Iowa, left the Hawkeyes in January, citing a back injury that he said was forcing him to retire. He revealed in May he actually moved on because of depression.
Miller told The World-Herald his experience in the transfer portal since then has been similar to his previous recruiting process. This time most of his interest came from FCS and Division II schools. But the school that once fascinated him — Nebraska — was there too. He said he settled on his decision about a week ago.
Miller enrolled at Iowa in January 2019 but didn’t play in his first college season. He arrived as the No. 354 overall prospect in his class and the No. 31 offensive tackle, according to the 247Sports composite.
Because he was on scholarship at Iowa, he would need an NCAA waiver to be eligible to play in 2020.
