Nebraska WR Derrion Grim announces transfer

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have lost a key piece of their 2016 recruiting class. Wednesday night, three-star wide receiver Derrion Grim announced his intention to transfer out of Nebraska.

Thank you to all the Husker fans & my Husker teammates. I appreciate everything you all have done for me. Love all of you!🌽🔴⚪️

He gave no reason for his decision to transfer out, but his father, LaTef, seemed to shed some light on it. He spoke with the Lincoln Journal-Star and said that his son did not feel right within the program.

He was uncomfortable there,” LaTef said. “This isn’t the first incident. He wanted to leave in the spring. Coaches talked to him … and it got to a point now where he was calling me through camp. And I was like, ‘This is camp.’ I thought it was camp life.”

Grim enrolled at Nebraska in January after he committed to the Cornhuskers over Boise State and FCS school Sacramento State.
