Juco RB Mills close to joining Husker program, per source

Mills (5-foot-11, 220 pounds) graduated from Garden City in December, but needed to take additional classes this spring to bring his cumulative grade-point average up to 2.5, the benchmark for transferring from a junior college to a four-year institution.

Mills rushed for 1,358 yards and 19 touchdowns in 10 games as a sophomore at GCCC and was the 2016 ACC Freshman of the Year in 2016 after rushing for 700-plus yards and 12 touchdowns for Georgia Tech. He was dismissed from the team before his sophomore year for failing multiple drug tests, a subject he’s been open about in the past, and then broke his collar bone during his first season in junior college.
