It has been a rough few years for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
After the departure of former head coach Mike Riley, Scott Frost was brought in to bring the program back to national prominence.

With two years of eligibility remaining, Warner joined the Kansas State Wildcats.
Kade Warner Transfers to K-State

Warner will be making the leap from the Big Ten to the Big 12 with the hopes of boosting his offensive numbers.
Assuming the team stays healthy, a big bounce-back season seems attainable for K-State.

Nebraska fans have to be growing frustrated with the on-field product they've had to watch over the last few seasons. In addition to Warner, players such quarterback Luke McCaffrey (Louisville), running back Wan'dale Robinson (Kentucky), and offensive lineman Will Farniok (Tulsa) are all leaving Lincoln.
Barring unforeseen progress, the glory days of Nebraska football seem like a relic of ancient history.
Kade Warner Highlights
Warner first appeared on the college football radar while playing for Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, Arizona. In three seasons on the varsity team, he racked up nearly 3,000 receiving yards and 35 touchdowns.
The wideout began his Huskers' career as a redshirt freshman in 2018, scoring on a two-point conversion against Iowa. He reached his career-high in receptions in that year as well, and he hasn't been able to generate forward momentum in each of the ensuing campaigns.
Last season, Warner was seldom used in games, only catching five passes for 40 yards.
Now that Kade Warner is out of Nebraska, K-State fans and coaches alike are hoping there's some untapped potential in his game. While he's probably not on the NFL Draft radar at this time, going undrafted worked pretty well for his dad.
If there's anyone who can climb the ranks quickly, it's someone from the Warner family.
