Nebraska wide receiver Darien Chase announced Friday night he was leaving the Husker football program after one season.
Chase had one catch for 13 yards last season but preserved his redshirt after appearing in just four games.
In a message posted to Twitter, Chase said he'd "struggled with mental illness and depression for the past 6 or 7 years, and these events put me in a place I can never fall to again, and it is the best decision for me and my family to transfer closer to home."
Chase said the decision to leave was "the hardest I've ever had to make because it has nothing to do with the program or football."
He is immediately entering the transfer portal.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder was a four-star recruit from Vancouver, Washington. His departure leaves NU with 10 scholarship receivers.
