Kanawai Noa, who led Cal in receiving yards per game in 2018, announced on Instagram on Sunday that he is transferring to Nebraska.

As a graduate transfer, Noa will be eligible to play immediately for the Cornhuskers.

Here is the story of the transfer from the Lincoln Journal Star.

Despite missing five games because of injuries, Noa caught 30 passes for 369 yards and two touchdowns in 2018. His 52-yard touchdown reception against BYU was a key play in the Bears' road victory over the Cougars.

Noa had a better season in 2017, when he was Cal’s second-leading receiver with 56 catches for 788 yards and four touchdowns.

Noa announced in January that he planned to transfer from Cal, leaving a void in the Bears' receiving corps.

Assuming he stays healthy, Noa could be an important target for Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez, who is entering his sophomore season running the offense of head coach Scott Frost.

Noa's decision to transfer to Nebraska had also been reported on College Football Talk.
