Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee won’t be returning to Nebraska in 2018.

Thursday afternoon, Lee announced that he would skip his senior season in Lincoln and declared for the 2018 NFL Draft. He served as the starting quarterback for the Huskers for just one season.

Lee made his announcement on his Twitter account.

“After weeks of prayer and consideration with my family, I’ve decided to enter the NFL Draft and pursue an opportunity that I feel is the best for myself and my family at this time,” Lee wrote.

Lee struggled this fall, his only season with the Huskers. While he threw for 3,143 yards (second-best in the B1G) and 23 touchdowns, he also had 16 interceptions and completed just 57.5 percent of his passes. Nebraska finished the year just 4-8.

Before coming to Nebraska in 2016, Lee spent two seasons at Tulane and played in 19 games. In those two years, he threw for 3,601 yards, 23 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. In three years at the college level, Lee’s completion rate never got above 60 percent.

The coaching change at Nebraska likely played a role in Lee’s decision to skip his final season in Lincoln. He would’ve been learning an entirely new system under Scott Frost and had no guarantee that he’d be the starter for the 2018 season.

Lee, who is a Louisiana native, was once regarded as one of the top college quarterbacks in the game by football legend Archie Manning.
