Nebraska OL Dwayne Johnson to Transfer to Texas Tech

Texas Tech has landed a graduate transfer offensive lineman from Nebraska.

According to Dwayne Johnson on Twitter, the Nebraska offensive lineman has decided to transfer to Texas Tech.

Johnson appears to be a graduate transfer, so he would be available immediately. His Nebraska profile has him at 6-6/300 pounds and played in just two games last year:

2017 Outlook
Dwyane Johnson Jr. heads into his senior season hoping to compete for playing time on a talented Husker offensive line. The 6-6, 300-pound Johnson has the versatility to play multiple positions along the offensive line and has provided depth throughout his career in Lincoln.

Johnson has distinguished himself off the field as a leader in Nebraska’s community outreach efforts. Johnson is a three-year member of the Brook Berringer and Tom Osborne Citizenship Teams and a recipient of a 2014 Nebraska Student-Athlete HERO Leadership Award.

Johnson is on track to earn his degree in criminology and criminal justice in May of 2017.

2016 (Junior)
Johnson played in two games as a reserve on the offensive line.

That’s the extent of Johnson’s playing time, so this isn’t a situation similar to the California tackle Aaron Cochran who had started at tackle for two years, but Johnson is a reserve offensive lineman for Nebraska. Originally from Bellaire in Houston. You can check out his senior highlights here:
