A former Nebraska quarterback announced his decision to transfer from the Huskers program after Scott Frost took over. Former four-star quarterback recruit Patrick O'Brien is headed elsewhere.

Nebraska's new offense under Frost did not fit O'Brien's skillset. He's a pro-style QB that likes to sit in the pocket. The Huskers' will be running a more up-tempo offense under Frost.

O'Brien recently visited Butch Davis at Florida International, and he recently knocked another school off his visits list.

He took a trip to Fort Collins to meet with Colorado State head coach Mike Bobo.

O'Brien was the No. 10 pro-style quarterback recruit in the 2016 class. Many believed he should have taken over for a struggling Tanner Lee during the 2017 season, though that obviously did not end up happening.

This way he'll have an opportunity to fight for a starting spot at a new program.

We'll keep you updated with the latest on O'Brien's transfer process.
