Nebraska lands second QB through transfer portal, gets pledge from ex-Florida State gunslinger
The transfer portal continues to help Nebraska this offseason.
On Monday afternoon, the Huskers earned a commitment from former Florida State quarterback Chubba Purdy, the younger brother of Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy. He’s the second transfer quarterback to commit to Nebraska since the conclusion of the 2021 regular season, joining ex-Texas quarterback Casey Thompson.
Nebraska was in the market for a quarterback after longtime starter Adrian Martinez entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. The four-year starter for the Huskers transferred to Kansas State.
Purdy made his announcement with a post on Twitter:

Purdy was a 4-star member of Florida State’s 2020 recruiting class. He was ranked as the No. 7 dual-threat quarterback in the class and was a Top 200 overall talent, per 247Sports.
Purdy spent two seasons at Florida State before entering the transfer portal. He completed 32-of-58 pass attempts for 317 yards and 4 touchdowns. He saw limited field time during the 2021 campaign.
Nebraska has continued to recruit the transfer portal well, addressing needs at quarterback, along the offensive line, and at the skill positions, running back and wide receiver.
The Huskers are looking to find some success after a disappointing 3-9 season in 2021. Through the transfer portal, Scott Frost and his staff are getting plenty of talent and experience to improve the roster.
