For the second time in less than a month, the Utah State Aggies football program has received a commitment from a player transferring from a Power Five school.

In April, former Michigan defensive back Hunter Reynolds pledged, and on Friday night it was former Nebraska Cornhuskers wide receiver Jamie Nance, who announced his decision on Twitter.

Listed at 6 feet and 180 pounds, Nance played in just one game over the course of two seasons for the Cornhuskers and announced he was entering the transfer portal on May 9. Since then, he has received scholarship offers from the likes of Tulsa, Northern Iowa and Texas State.

According to 247 Sports, Nance had scholarship offers from a number of Power Five programs coming out of Blanchard High School in Oklahoma as part of the Class of 2019, as well as Arkansas State, where new Aggies coach Blake Anderson was the coach at that time.

Expected to be eligible immediately, Nance will bolster a wide receiver corps at Utah State that looks to be in need of significant help entering the 2021 season.
