Former Nebraska quarterback Johnny Stanton — who left NU's program over the summer when coaches told him he wouldn't be invited to the early part of training camp — announced Sunday night he was picking UNLV as his new school. 

He announced the move on Twitter on Sunday:

Stanton spent one season at Saddleback College in Los Angeles, where he's played well. 

UNLV is home to former Nebraska offensive line coaches Barney Cotton and John Garrison. Cotton calls plays; Garrison coaches the line. Two more ex-Huskers — Ben Cotton and Cody Green — are graduate assistants on the staff. The Rebels finished 3-9 this season but enjoyed relative success on offense, averaging 405 yards per game. 

Stanton was a four-star recruit in Nebraska's 2013 class. He redshirted in 2013 to rehab a knee injury, played sparingly in 2014 and transferred after the 2015 spring training camp.
