LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska got its second transfer portal addition from Georgia on Sunday.

Tight end Arik Gilbert, a former five-star recruit, announced he was coming to Nebraska in a Twitter post.

The Georgia native began his college career in 2020 with LSU, where he was voted to the Freshman All-SEC Team

Gilbert played eight games and caught 35 passes for 368 yards and two touchdowns.

In 2021, Gilbert decided to transfer to Georgia, where he served as a reserve tight end and only saw action in three games last season.

On Monday, fellow teammate Mekhail Sherman’s mother announced the linebacker would be transferring to Nebraska.

Gilbert joins a long list of offseason transfers, including Jeff Sims, Chief Borders and Ben Scott.
