Nevada defensive lineman Javasia Brunson, who was one of the top recruits in the Wolf Pack's 2019 recruiting class, has entered the NCAA transfer portal.
Brunson, a 6-foot-2, 270-pounder from east Texas, made the announcement via his Twitter page this week, writing: "Officially in the transfer portal Thanks (sic) you @NevadaFootball for everything wish nothing but succes (sic) in the future and @CoachJayNorvell thanks for changing my life for the better all love."
Brunson was listed as a three-star recruit coming out of high school and was the No. 68-ranked strongside defensive end in his recruiting class. He reported offers from Oklahoma State, Memphis, Liberty, North Texas, SMU, Southern Miss, Tulane, Tulsa, USF, and UTEP coming out of high school. Playing for Lufkin High, Brunson was a two-time first-team all-district honoree in the Texas Class 5A level. His high school team went 21-5 during his junior and senior seasons. Brunson was the sixth-highest-rated recruit in Nevada's 2019 class.
Brunson appeared in three games as a true freshman last season and is a redshirt freshman entering 2020.
Of the 21 players in the Wolf Pack's 2019 recruiting class, Brunson would be the sixth scholarship player from that class to leave Nevada following his first season on campus, joining LB JaVanz Dornners, QB Austin Kirksey, TE Ryan Smith, LB Patrick Willis and LB Jalen Williams.
