Maurice Washington

Maurice Washington was a Husker for two seasons before getting dismissed from the team this month.

Former Nebraska running back Maurice Washington has entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to ESPN.

NU dismissed Washington from the team last week, announcing that he would enter the transfer portal “soon.” It appears he has.

Washington thanked Husker fans on Twitter.

“I would like to thank everyone who helped me and believed in me on this journey (and) nothing but love for Husker nation!”

The portal, which went live in 2018, functions as a massive contact database that can be accessed by member schools.

Washington remains charged with two crimes, including a felony, in California. His next date in Santa Clara County Court is Friday.

He will have three years to exercise two seasons of eligibility. Washington also has a four-game redshirt at his disposal.
