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 announced his intentions to head elsewhere.

Although he's a talented quarterback, O'Brien's skillset didn't fit Scott Frost's offense. He's a pro-style QB that likes to sit in the pocket, meanwhile the Huskers' will be running a more up-tempo offense under Frost.

O'Brien visited Butch Davis at Florida International, and just two weeks ago he visited Mike Bobo and the Colorado State Rams.

O'Brien decided he likes Fort Collins.

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 his new program.

We wish him luck.
