For the second straight day the Nebraska football team lost a primary part of its 2020 backfield when running back Dedrick Mills announced his declaration for the NFL Draft. All purpose back Wan’Dale Robinson announced on Monday that he would be entering the transfer portal.

Mills ran for 1,300 yards and 13 touchdowns in two seasons as a Huskers, but also suffered from nagging injuries.

There was good news for the Huskers on Tuesday.  Former Southern Cal running back Markese Stepp has committed to Nebraska.  The 6’ 0”, 235-lb back had 45 carries and 165 yards with three touchdowns this past season.

Stepp began the season at USC’s number one tailback on the depth chart but suffered from turf toe most of the season.
