Linebacker David Santos and two other football players are leaving Nebraska.
Husker coach Mike Riley didn’t say why Santos won’t be back for his senior season. Santos had major knee surgery after starting eight games last season.
Riley also said that safety LeRoy Alexander and receiver Jariah Tolbert will transfer. Alexander was suspended for the entire 2014 season for an undisclosed reason. Tolbert was charged with marijuana possession in June 2014 and again this past April.
