LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Husker running back Anthony Grant announced Monday that he is coming back to Nebraska for his final season of eligibility.

On Twitter, Grant – who came to Nebraska after two seasons at the New Mexico Military Institute – said he’s returning to be a part of the “comeback season.”

In 2022, Grant led Nebraska with 218 carries, which is the most by a Husker since 2014.

The Georgia native racked up 915 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns this season, with an average of 76.3 rushing yards per game.

Back in September, Grant was named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week after rushing for 189 yards and two touchdowns against North Dakota.

Just last Tuesday, edge rusher Garrett Nelson announced that he would not be returning to Nebraska for his final year of eligibility.

The Scottsbluff native said he would instead enter his name into the NFL draft, along with teammates Ochaun Mathis, Trey Palmer, Chancellor Brewington and Caleb Tannor.
