(Neb.)- Riley Tweets Tanner Lee Enters Summer As Huskers' No. 1 QB

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 04/20/2017 08:18 AM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska coach Mike Riley announced on Twitter that Tanner Lee will head into summer as the Cornhuskers' No. 1 quarterback.
 
Riley said in a series of tweets Wednesday night that the competition among the quarterbacks was outstanding this spring and that they would continue to push each other. Riley said coaches met with the quarterbacks and "explained the importance of defining a starter at this time."
 
Lee, a junior from Destrehan, Louisiana, who transferred from Tulane, beat out redshirt freshman Patrick O'Brien. Lee made 19 starts at Tulane in 2014-15 and completed 54 percent of his passes, with 23 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.

Lee was sharp in the spring game on Saturday, completing 13 of 19 passes for 190 yards and three touchdowns.
