That certainly didn’t take long.
After reports had surfaced on Monday, Scott Frost confirmed the next day that quarterback Tristan Gebbia had asked for and been granted a release from Nebraska. One day after his departure was made official, it’s now being reported that Gebbia has already decided to transfer to Oregon State.
At the Left Coast OSU, will see a familiar coaching face in Trent Bray. Bray spent the past three seasons as the linebackers coach of the Cornhuskers, the same job for which he was hired by the Beavers late last year.
Gebbia was a three-star 2017 signee, rated as the No. 9 pro-style quarterback in the country on 247Sports.com‘s composite board. He took a redshirt as a true freshman this past season.
After sitting out 2018 to satisfy NCAA bylaws, Gebbia will have three years of eligibility he can use beginning with the 2019 season.
The decision to transfer came just days after Gebbia lost out on the starting quarterback job to true freshman Adrian Martinez. Gebbia’s transfer left Martinez as the only scholarship quarterback eligible to play for the Cornhuskers in 2018.
