Tanner Lee is ready for the opportunity and the responsibility that comes with being the starting quarterback at Nebraska. The transfer from Tulane sat out last season and was named the replacement for four-year starter Tommy Armstrong at the end of spring drills.
“I think I am definitely aware of what comes with playing the position and especially about being at Nebraska”, said Lee. “The most passionate fans you are going to come across are at Nebraska. It has been a lot of fun but I have been just focusing on my job and our locker room.”
Lee has yet to take a snap for the Huskers but he does having college experience and made 19 starts in two seasons at Tulane. He started nine games at quarterback in 2015 and threw for 1,639 yards and 11 touchdowns, while completing 52 percent of his passes.
“Being lucky enough to land at Nebraska into a great opportunity and just using everything I have learned in the past has made me a better player and leader.”
The Huskers open the season at home September 2, against Arkansas State.
