Nebraska quarterback O'Brien announces transfer

O'Brien granted release from NU football program

Patrick O'Brien, who had the most game experience of any returning Nebraska quarterback, announced on social media that he will transfer to another school.

"I want to thank Coach Frost and all of his staff", the San Juan Capistrano, California native wrote.

O'Brien, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound sophomore, was equipped to play in the pro-style attack featured by former head coach Mike Riley. Martinez and redshirt freshman Tristan Gebbia are the only two scholarship quarterbacks eligible to play in 2018 and will both have a chance to claim the starting job. Later in the post O'Brien said he "loved every minute at this school and will cherish it for a lifetime".

Now it's down to three candidates plus work for Central Florida transfer Noah Vedral, who must sit out 2018 per transfer rules.

Frost confirmed that O'Brien's running skillset was a key factor in determining reps. "They've just kind of passed him".

"He's done everything we've asked him to do", Frost said to the World-Herald. "We think (O'Brien) is a great kid, I think he's a talented kid, I just don't think his skill set really fits what we're trying to do schematically". That's what he was recruited here to do, and then the offense changed. "He's done everything we've asked him to do, he's a great kid, he wants to find an offense that fits his skillset".

The quarterback played in a little bit of action for Nebraska in 2017. Frost said he had not decided on whether NU would pursue a graduate transfer quarterback in the offseason.

O'Brien came into spring camp the likely replacement for the departed Tanner Lee, but will now look for a different program after surprisingly being granted his release Thursday. He finished the season with 18 completions on 30 passing attempts for 192 yards.

O'Brien was a four-star recruit coming out of high school.
