It looks like former Washington tight end Kavario Mitchell is not coming to Nebraska after all. Mitchell had an issue with academics when trying to enroll at NU. Mitchell played 11 games last year with the Huskies, but was kicked off the team for disciplinary reasons.
Basketball. Bo Spencer, a two-year starting point guard for LSU, is joining the Huskers as a walk-on. Spencer, was dismissed from LSU earlier this month not meeting academic requirements. Spencer is 6’ and started 28 of 31 games last season for LSU and averaged 14.5 points. He must sit out one year and he’ll have one year of eligibility left and he was not promised a scholarship for next season from head coach Doc Sadler.
