Riley says he knows of no transfers

With the scholarship chart looking like it is at 88, Nebraska's Mike Riley was asked about potential transfers.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Mike Riley says he knows of no players planning to transfer before practice begins in August.

Riley said Thursday he's aware of fan speculation about players leaving, especially with five scholarship quarterbacks on the roster. He said he's met individually with players in recent weeks and that the roster is "status quo as we speak."

Riley said he's surprised no one is transferring because invariably one or more players left in the offseason during his years at Oregon State.

Riley also said he didn't plan to take any graduate transfers. He said he would look at a grad transfer "if it's the right guy with the right talent and if we have a special need." Riley said he isn't a coach who would "seek out" graduate transfers.
