Oklahoma State Offensive Lineman Commits to Nebraska

Oklahoma State offensive lineman Hunter Anthony announced Sunday that he will transfer to play football for Nebraska.

According to the Omaha World Herald, Anthony, who played a few snaps for the Cowboys in their 37-35 win over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl less than 24 hours earlier, didn’t want to distract from the game and waited to make his decision public until Sunday morning. Now he’s thrilled to be Nebraska’s sixth transfer-portal addition this cycle and be in the mix for playing time along a retooled line. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

“I’ve trained for four years — I know what it takes, you know?” Anthony said. “I’m just excited to have a new place and have a new team and to come work my butt off. I know what I want: I want to work, I want to play and I want to get my (master’s) degree.”

Anthony — who can play tackle or guard — has appeared in 22 college games, including five starts. He was the starting right tackle in 2020 before a broken foot in the opener cost him most of the fall. This year he’s been a reserve in 10 games, occasionally being used as a blocking tight end.
Anthony already has a bachelor’s degree in business management and sports management. He is the second OSU lineman to come to Lincoln recently after D-lineman Darrion Daniels spent 2019 in Lincoln and became a captain following a career in Stillwater.
The Huskers have made five other portal adds in recent weeks: receiver Isaiah Garcia-Castaneda (New Mexico State), defensive back Tommi Hill (Arizona State), offensive lineman Kevin Williams (Northern Colorado), punter Brian Buschini (Montana) and kicker Timmy Bleekrode (Furman).
