Reports: Nebraska RB Braylon Heard will transfer to Kentucky
Nebraska running back Braylon Heard, a former four-star recruit, will transfer to Kentucky, according to reports.
Heard, a sophomore last year for the Cornhuskers, will sit out the fall of 2013 and have two seasons of eligibility remaining for the Wildcats. He also considered transferring to Pittsburgh.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder rushed for 348 yards and three touchdowns for Nebraska in 2012, averaging 6.7 yards per carry. However, he was third on the tailback depth chart behind 1,000-yard sophomore Ameer Abdullah and veteran Rex Burkhead.
Getting the former four-star recruit to come to Kentucky is a big coup for new coach Mark Stoops who, incidentally, went to the same high school as Heard -- Cardinal Mooney High in Youngstown, Ohio.
Kentucky's two leading rushers from last year, Raymond Sanders and Jonathan George, will both be seniors this fall, paving the way for Heard to potentially grab the starting spot in 2014.
