Riley announces three Huskers out of program

BY foxsports • June 11, 2015

Early Thursday morning, Huskers head coach Mike Riley dropped some news that three players would no longer be with the program, per a short press release from the school: 

"Nebraska Head Coach Mike Riley announced Thursday that safety LeRoy Alexander and receiver Jariah Tolbert plan to continue their college careers at different institutions. In addition, Riley announced that linebacker David Santos will not be with the Nebraska football team in the fall." 

The most concerning player to lose of the group is clearly Santos as linebacker depth was already a concern with the team. Now the team will likely need a freshman linebacker to contribute. This is also an opportunity for Marcus Newby to show what he can do in defensive coordinator Mark Banker's scheme.
