Cal wide receiver transfers to Nebraska

1 Comment

Nebraska is adding a Pac-12 wide receiver to the mix in Lincoln with the addition of Kanawai Noa. Noa will join the Huskers after previously playing his college football at Cal. Noa confirmed his commitment to Nebraska with a photo on his Instagram account.

Noa will be a graduate transfer, which will allow him to be eligible to get on the field in Nebraska’s offense right away this fall. Noa missed some playing time in 2018 due to injury concerns, but his experience at Cal will be a welcomed addition to the Nebraska offense.

In nine games last season, Noa caught 30 passes for 369 yards and two touchdowns. In 2017, Noa was Cal’s second-leading receiver with 788 yards and four touchdowns. If he remains healthy, Noa will be a good piece to use as a target for Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez, who is entering his sophomore season running the offense of Scott Frost.
