The battle at quarterback continues as the final week of spring drills begin at Nebraska. Redshirt freshman Patrick O’Brien and junior Tanner Lee are battling to take over for Tommy Armstrong and O’Brien believes the competition is making both quarterbacks better.
“I had competitions in high school against older kids and ended up winning those”, said O’Brien. “You are going to have competition wherever you go so it is just making us better all around.”
Lee says he has been working on being consistent with his throws.
“Just completing every throw on every down”, said Lee. ” I don’t want to miss any throws that I am not supposed to miss and that is what coach Langsdorf harps on the most is making the throws when you need them.”
Lee is a transfer from Tulane where he made 19 starts in two seasons. In 2015, He started nine games at quarterback and threw for 1,639 yards and 11 touchdowns, while completing 52 percent of his passes. Nebraska’s spring game is Saturday.
