Jared Bubak. Walk on TE. No doubt looking to get his school paid for maybe at the FCS level. The number of players in the portal is INSANE. We're not the only ones losing 4 star guys to the portal. Yikes. Looking through the QB options, I think the only guys we maybe would have wanted knew where they were going before they declared. There has to be a hundred running backs in the portal.

Is it a loss if he refuses to play anything but QB and can't really do that well enough?

He was given a chance and played bad. He's a freshman so big deal...yet he now wants to transfer instead of getting better and starting in 22'? Good riddance if he can't see that or know he has to be a WR to make the pros.

Our QB room is not exactly flush with talent . Summers is the only real challenger to AM .

Everyone else would be a project .

What a tough break for Bubak. A scholarship kid from ASU transfers back to his hometown school to get to taste NU campus life and the Memorial Stadium experience. Instead, there's a pandemic, basically no spring practice, no fans and little chance to learn the offense and get some playing time.

It was his choice to leave. See ya.

It was always going to be a wild portal year with COVID and the free eligibility year. Nobody should be surprised.

NU could potentially grab some major dudes before it's said and done.
im guessing Frost got the 2 highest desired transfers on his board already. the portal consists predominantly of players who couldn't make the starting lineup at their current school. there wont be a whole lot of big difference makers. NEB already has a ton of players at many position groups. at some point you have to trust your recruiting and develop the kids you recruited.

Don’t know him personally, but if he was smart he took advantage of all the ‘fringe benefits’ while at ASU. I think he’ll be okay.

Pretty good summary! Well done and no RSS cynicism.

Penn State just lost a scholarship QB to the portal and in the past year four or five other guys. This stuff is happening everywhere. When this pandemic is over the powers that be need to take a hard look at this whole portal thing.

“This stuff is happening everywhere” - exactly correct. Schools that had great seasons, schools that had poor seasons, doesn’t matter. Everyone is losing kids to the portal. Coaches’ jobs are tougher now. Not only do they have to recruit high school and JUCO kids, now they have to re-recruit the kids they already signed - then when some of those enter the portal, they have to go recruit somebody else’s players FROM the portal!
