Former Washington receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow says he is transferring to Nebraska.

Stringfellow said he signed paperwork on Saturday to complete the transfer.

"I needed a new start, fresh start, and I feel like Nebraska was the best place to do so," Stringfellow told the Omaha World-Herald. "It's a great environment and a great school."

Rated No. 51 in the ESPN 300 for the Class of 2013, Stringfellow attended Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, California, which also produced former Huskers wideout Quincy Enunwa and former linebacker Eric Martin.

Enunwa, drafted last month by the New York Jets, led Nebraska in receiving yardage last season and set a school record with 12 touchdown catches. The 6-foot-3, 229-pound Stringfellow caught 20 passes as a true freshman for the Huskies last fall.

He and UW quarterback Cyler Miles were involved in an altercation in Seattle after the Super Bowl with two Seahawks fans.

Both players were suspended by Washington coach Chris Petersen. Stringfellow pleaded guilty in April to three misdemeanors and was sentenced in a plea agreement to five days on a work crew, fined $693 and ordered to attend anger-management counseling.

Miles, not charged in the incident, was reinstated by Petersen in May.

NCAA transfer rules require Stringfellow to sit out at Nebraska in 2014. He would be a third-year sophomore in 2015.
