The Nebraska Cornhuskers coaching staff seemed to have an quandry with the Quarterback depth issue they inherited with the loss of Johnny Stanton. It seems now that there is a short-term answer.

Tulane Quarterback Tanner Lee announced on twitter Saturday afternoon that he intends to transfer to Nebraska instead of LSU, where he had considered going as well.

Lee originally signed with Tulane out of Jesuit HS in New Orleans.

Lee started 19 games for the Green Wave in the past 2 seasons, starting 9 games being hampered by a hand injury. Lee threw for just over 1600 yards this past season, with 11 Touchdowns and 7 Interceptions.

Because of a hand injury, Lee is seeking to get a extra year of eligibility. He will have to sit out this coming season due to NCAA regulations, but if he does get a medical exemption, he will have 2 seasons to play at Nebraska.

The Huskers were looking to take 2 Quarterbacks with Patrick O'Brien and originally Terry Wilson coming to Lincoln, however O'Brien was the only one that made it to campus.
