Damore’ea Stringfellow changes mind, transfering to Ole Miss

June 20, 12:26 PM

Wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow, who decided last month to transfer out of Washington after just one season, was all set to move to Nebraska. He'd even signed a letter of intent with the Corn Huskers. 

But even after signing the letter, Stringfellow decided to satisfy his curiosity and take a recruiting trip to Mississippi. Well, the south must have made quite an impression on the young wideout, who has apparently changed course and committed to Ole Miss instead.  

According to the Omaha World-Herald, the former four-star recruit confirmed the decision via text message, saying that what changed his mind was "My visit and just getting to know the coaches and talking to the players about what type of program it was."

In his one season at Washington, Stringfellow played seven games, catching 20 passes for 259 yards and one touchdown. He'll be forced to redshirt next season, after which he'll have three years of eligibility left.

Nebraska's Pelini says Stringfellow decision impacted by 'clueless parent'

July 29, 9:45 PM

Back in June, Washington wide receiver Damoe'ea Stringfellow, a top-100 overall recruit, flip-flopped after allegedly committing to Nebraska, electing to commit to Ole Miss instead.

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini addressed the situation at Big Ten Media Days, and didn't hold back. Huskers Illustrated's Michael Bruntz explains:

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini was asked about the abrupt change of heart by Stringfellow, who had been set to enroll at Nebraska in July.

"Read between the lines," Pelini said. "I think we all know what happened in that situation."

Pelini was then asked whether it's parents making their kids' decisions for them, and whether things change when recruits return home after making a decision, and if that's frustrating.

"Especially when it's a clueless parent," Pelini said.

Stringfellow officially visited Nebraska after committing, but still took visits to Alabama and Ole Miss, eventually announcing he would be committing to Ole Miss.

Damore’ea Stringfellow completes transfer from Washington to Nebraska

June 1, 2:49 PM

Damore'ea Stringfellow will transfer from Washington to Nebraska after the wide receiver told Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald the transfer was completed Saturday after signing a letter of intent.

“I needed a new start, fresh start, and I feel like Nebraska was the best place to do so,” he said. "It’s a great environment and a great school. ... I wanted to go somewhere I felt comfortable, and I felt comfortable with Bo Pelini and Coach (Rich) Fisher. Two great guys I want to be coached by.”

A four-star recruit, Stringfellow caught 20 passes for 259 yards and scored one touchdown during his freshman season.

It remains unknown whether Stringfellow is eligible to play right away for the Huskers because he still needs to apply for immediate eligibility, but McKewon says the team expects him to arrive in mid-July.
