Sources tell Rivals’ Justin Rowland that Nebraska running back Braylon Heard will transfer to Kentucky. He will likely sit out the 2013 season and have two seasons of eligibility left.
Heard visited UK two weeks ago, and is currently a sophomore at Nebraska. He attended Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio, which should sound very familiar to you by now since it’s the alma mater of both Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow, who was on Nebraska’s staff prior to leaving for UK. Coming out of high school, the four-star Heard was ranked the fifth best running back in the nation and the 57th overall player in the 2010 class. Last year, he averaged 6.69 yards per carry in 55 attempts and scored three touchdowns, but was unhappy with his reduced role in the Husker offense.
Watch him work:
Welcome to the fam, Braylon.
