Former Nebraska running back Braylon Heard will transfer to Kentucky, according to ESPN.com.

Heard, who rushed for 348 yards while averaging 6.7 yards per carry with the Huskers last season, chose Kentucky over Pittsburgh.

Heard was a highly recruited back out of Cardinal Mooney High School of Youngstown, Ohio -- the same high school new Kentucky coach Mark Stoops attended. Heard said he wanted to play for a school closer to his hometown.

"I feel it is the right spot because I feel like I fit in well at the university," Heard told ESPN. "Kentucky will set up the run really well. They have good players on the outside, three good QB's, a great line and backs. And yes, can't beat being in the SEC."
The Huskers are left with Ameer Abduallah and Imani Cross as the only two running backs on the roster with experience.
