Last month, erstwhile Washington wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow was quoted as saying that “Nebraska is definitely a team I’m considering” transferring to.
Less than two weeks later, Stringfellow is definitely headed to the Midwest.
While the school has yet to announce his addition, Stringfellow told HuskersIllustrated.com that he has decided to continue his playing career with the Cornhuskers. The player stated that his new position coach played a significant role in his decision.
“I love the coaches and in particular [wide receivers ]coach [Ron] Fisher,” said Stringfellow. “I plan on visiting in June and I will arrive July 13 or 14. This is it for me. I’m signed and set for Nebraska. My family, my mom and my dad support my decision 100-percent.”
Miles, along with former teammate and quarterback Cyler Miles, were allegedly involved in a pair of assaults this past February. Miles, who was reinstated to the team earlier this month, was not charged while Stringfellow was charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault in the fourth degree and one count of malicious mischief in early April. From the Seattle Times:
Stringfellow pleaded guilty last month to three gross misdemeanor charges. In a plea agreement with prosecutors, Stringfellow was sentenced to five days on a work crew, fined $693 and ordered to attend anger-management counseling.
Stringfellow’s transfer from the Huskies was announced in mid-May, the same day Miles was reinstated.
With the receiver landing in Lincoln, it will give NU’s coaching staff a significant and talented weapon in 2015.
In 2013 as a true freshman, Stringfellow caught 20 passes for 259 yards. Stringfellow, a four-star member of UW’s 2013 recruiting class who was rated as the No. 10 receiver in the country and who nearly signed with NU coming out of high school, was projected starter as a Huskies heading into spring practice.
Should the California native transfer to Nebraska or any other FBS program, he would have to sit out the 2014 season but would maintain three years of eligibility beginning in 2015.
