With an offensive system change coming for the Huskers in 2018 and a record-breaking season under his belt, redshirt junior Tanner Lee declared early for the NFL draft today. In his only season leading Nebraska’s offense, Lee passed for 3,143 yards and 23 touchdowns while helping receivers J.D. Spielman and Stanley Morgan Jr set break multiple Cornhusker records along the way. Lee set Husker records as well, he leaves Nebraska as the #3 single-season passer at Nebraska.
After weeks of prayer and consideration with my family, I’ve decided to enter the NFL Draft and pursue an opportunity that I feel is the best for myself and my family at this time.
I want to say thank you to Coach Riley, Coach Langsdorf, Coach Keith Williams, and all my coaches for the opportunity to Play for Nebraska; It was the opportunity of a lifetime. Thank you to my teammates. Thank you for letting me into your locker room 2 years ago and coming out with brothers and friends for life.
I cannot thank Husker Nation enough for making it so special. 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 a part of my college career, I honestly couldn’t have done it without you.
GO BIG RED

With Lee’s declaration, the Huskers quarterback room is wide open for a handful of young talents to challenge for the reigns. Redshirt sophomore Patrick O’Brien and redshirt freshman Tristan Gebbia look to compete alongside incoming freshman Adrian Martinez for the starting quarterback position next fall.
