Suddenly, the Nebraska Cornhusker football program is quarterback wealthy.

Just six months following the earth-shattering news that Dylan Raiola, one of the top recruits in the country, would be calling Lincoln home, the Huskers have added another transfer QB.

The Huskers got a transfer commitment on Thursday from Jalyn Gramstad, who starred at nearby Northwestern (IA) at the NAIA level.

Gramstad played his high school football at West Lyon High School in Iowa, and will join the Huskers soon ahead of the 2024 campaign:

Gramstad may not have been a marquee recruit, but his collegiate career is off to an amazing start. This past season, the Junior was named NAIA player of the year, among other accomplishments:

The long list of accolades continues for the junior signal caller. He was named an American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and NAIA First Team All-American, the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) Offensive Player of the Year. Additionally, he was a First Team All-GPAC performer this season and a three-time GPAC Offensive Player of the Week honoree.

He becomes just the second Red Raider to garner NAIA Player of the Year honors. Gramstad marks the fourth-consecutive GPAC athlete to be named the NAIA Player of the Year.

Gramstad's stats last year included a 67.8% completion percentage, 3,681 passing yards, 35 touchdowns, just 9 interceptions, and he also added 772 rushing yards and 8 scores on the ground.

It's safe to say that despite the accolades, it appears Raiola's job to lose. But, you can never have too many good players on a roster, especially at Quarterback.

35 Movies That Take Place in South Dakota

When it comes to South Dakota and Hollywood, we've seen our fair share of films that have used our state as the backdrop for a number of productions over the years. They may not have always filmed here, but movie folk love to set stories here.

We're all familiar with the blockbusters like 1990's Dances With Wolves, 1959's North By Northwest, and more recently, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets. But our state's life on the big screen goes back nearly 100 years.

According to IMDb, it all started with Courtin' Wildcats, a 1929 film which, like so many of the 29 films on this list, is a Western set in the time before South Dakota became a state in 1889.
