There’s officially a new addition to Oregon State’s quarterback room.
Early last week, after reports surfaced that Tristan Gebbia had decided to leave Nebraska, Scott Frost confirmed that the quarterback had been granted a release from his scholarship. Shortly thereafter, it appeared Gebbia was headed to OSU.
Monday, the Pac-12 program announced that Gebbia has joined Jonathan Smith‘s team as a transfer. The redshirt freshman will be forced to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules. He’ll then have three seasons of eligibility he can use beginning with the 2019 season.
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.
The decision to transfer shortly before the start of the 2018 season came just days after Gebbia lost out on the starting quarterback job to true freshman Adrian Martinez
In Corvallis, Gebbia will see a couple of familiar faces from his short stint in Lincoln.
It was confirmed in the middle of last week that linebacker Avery Roberts, the highest-rated signee in Nebraska’s 2017 recruiting class, would transferring to OSU. Additionally, Trent 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.
