Nebraska 's receiving corps has received a potential major boost with the arrival of Washington sophomore transfer Damore'ea Stringfellow.

A former four-star and top-100 overall recruit from Moreno Valley, Calif., Stringfellow told 247Sports' Huskers Illustrated he had officially filed his transfer papers with Nebraska late Saturday evening. 

"Nebraska was my second choice when I committed to Washington," Stringfellow said. "I love the coaches and in particular [wide receivers coach Rich Fisher]. I plan on visiting in June and I will arrive July 13 or 14. This is it for me. I'm signed and set for Nebraska. My family, my mom and my dad support my decision 100 percent."

Along with Huskies quarterback Cyler Miles, Stringfellow was suspended by Washington in February after being accused of punching a man and was eventually charged with fourth-degree assault. Miles was not charged and was reinstated in May, but Stringfellow pleaded guilty to three misdemeanors and the school announced he would transfer. 

Washington fans weren't thrilled to see Stringfellow leave the program, and not without reason: he finished as the team's sixth-leading receiver as a true freshman, catching 20 balls for 259 yards. 147 of those came in a breakout performance against UCLA that suggested Stringfellow may be able to capitalize on his substantial potential.

Stringfellow will redshirt during his 2014 transfer season and will have three years to play his three remaining seasons of eligiblity.
