More times than not, it seems, it’s a Group of Five program that’s the recipient of a Power Five transfer, especially when it comes to the quarterback position. This time around, though, the signal-calling script has been flipped.
On his personal Twitter account Saturday night, Tanner Lee announced that he has decided to continue his collegiate playing career at Nebraska. This decision comes a little over three weeks after Lee announced his decision — on Twitter — to transfer from Tulane.
LSU had also been a consideration for Lee.
As it stands now, Lee would be forced to sit out the 2016 season if he lands at Nebraska — or any other FBS program for that matter — and would then have one season of eligibility left that he could use in 2017. However, Lee is reportedly seeking a sixth season of eligibility from the NCAA; if that’s granted, his playing window would extend through the 2018 season.
While at Tulane, Lee started 10 games as a redshirt freshman in 2014, then started nine more in 2015. In those two seasons, he threw 23 touchdowns vs. 21 interceptions. While it counts sack totals, Lee ran for minus-287 yards during his time with the Green Wave.
