The Nebraska Cornhuskers have a terrific quarterback in Tommy Armstrong Jr., but he will be playing his final year of eligibility this season. It looks like their depth chart got a little less confusing when sophomore AJ Bush announced his transfer from the school.
Bush took to Twitter on Thursday and expressed his desire to transfer from the school this year. Head coach Mike Riley implored him to stay into the future, but he felt it was his best decision to leave.
Bush was a three-star member of the Cornhuskers’ 2014 recruiting class and redshirted during his true freshman year. It seems that him being far down the depth chart was the biggest reason for him to leave the school.
Armstrong and Ryker Fyfe are the two top quarterbacks on the roster this year and freshman Patrick O’Brien seems to have the No. 3 spot locked up. With Tanner Lee transferring in this year and Tristan Gebbia committing for 2017, it certainly seems like the quarterback position will be pretty jumbled next season, even with Armstrong and Fyfe graduating.
