The Nebraska football program will be looking for a new starting quarterback in 2018.
On Thursday, Cornhuskers signal-caller Tanner Lee announced he will be forgoing his final year of eligibility to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft. Lee played just one season at Nebraska after transferring from Tulane.
“I cannot thank Husker Nation enough for making it so special,” Lee said in a statement released on Twitter. “I will be a Husker for life. I want to wish Coach Frost and his staff the best of luck, Nebraska is in great hands.
“Thank you to everyone that has been apart of my college career, I honestly couldn’t have done it without you.”
