A big-name transfer portal WR and Pennsylvania kid who was once a five-star recruit and heavy Penn State target is visiting another Big Ten school.
Julian Fleming, who played at Ohio State for four seasons and entered the portal the day it opened (last Monday), is taking an official visit to Nebraska, along with former OSU QB Kyle McCord, On3Sports’ Pete Nakos reported Sunday afternoon.
Nebraska will have two former Buckeyes on campus this week.
Sources confirmed to @On3sports and @HuskerOnline that Ohio State transfer wide receiver Julian Fleming will be on campus this week, too. The No. 1 receiver in 2020 recruiting class. https://t.co/ee1OfZjVet pic.twitter.com/dz79aXcSLS

Coming out of Southern Columbia High School— located in Catawissa, which is roughly an hour and a half from State College— Fleming was the No. 1 receiver and No. 4 player in the country according to 247Sports, along with being the top-rated player in Pennsylvania.
As one could imagine, Penn State recruited Fleming hard.
He ended up committing to Ohio State in May 2019, picking it over Alamaba, Clemson, Georgia and, yes, Penn State, among other schools.
