Following the news that former Colorado quarterback Nick Hirschman would transfer to Akron, multiple outlets are reporting that ex-Buffaloes offensive lineman Alex Lewis is transferring to Nebraska after a visit to Lincoln this past week.
Lewis started all 12 games for Colorado last season at left guard. His father, Bill Lewis, was an All-America center for the Huskers in 1985 before going on to a career in the NFL.
“It’s been a dream of mine to play where my father played,” Lewis said. “I finally get to do that.”
Lewis originally chose to grayshirt for the Buffaloes. He will have to sit out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules, but have two years of eligibility remaining come 2014.
