William Przystup is staying in the Big Ten.

The former Michigan State punter, who head coach Mark Dantonio last month said planned to transfer, announced Monday on Twitter that he's heading to Nebraska.

"Blessed to become part of @HuskerFBNation and this talented program," Przystup tweeted.

Przystup was part of a carousel of punters used by the Spartans last season because of injuries to starter Jake Hartbarger and Tyler Hunt. Fellow walk-on Bryce Baringer and backup quarterback Rocky Lombardi (in an emergency situation following Harbarger's injury at Arizona State) also saw action.

Przystup, a freshman, was the primary punter in the final four games, including the Redbox Bowl, and averaged 40.6 yards on 27 punts. Nine of his punts landed inside the 20-yard line.

Hartbarger will be back for a sixth season, and the Spartans signed Australian punter Jack Bouwmeester in December. Bouwmeester already has enrolled at Michigan State.
