Ex-USC defensive back Ceyair Wright has announced his transfer to Nebraska, he told ESPN.

Wright, who started 15 games for the Trojans over the past two seasons and has played in 23 career games, has recorded six pass breakups and one interception. Additionally, he has gained recognition for his acting career.

He joins a Nebraska team that finished in the top 15 in both total defense and scoring defense last year under coordinator Tony White. The Cornhuskers are returning seven defensive starters and ten offensive starters, creating high expectations for the 2024 season following their 5-7 record in Matt Rhule’s first year as head coach.

Wright was attracted to Nebraska’s culture, telling ESPN: “What stood out to me was how much all the coaches invested in me. Everyone was committed to helping me grow as a person and player.”
