Former Nebraska football quarterback Chubba Purdy is entering the transfer portal on Wednesday evening. This was confirmed by Chubba Purdy’s father Shawn , to Evan Bland of the Omaha World-Herald.

The quarterback will enter the portal as a graduate transfer.

Purdy was brought into the program in December 2021 after transferring from Florida State. Former Huskers offensive coordinator Mark Whipple was his primary recruiter.

Purdy made more of an impact this past season. He made four starts, throwing for 382 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions. He made five appearances in total over the course of the season.

What does this mean for Nebraska football?

This is a move that makes sense for Purdy. Nebraska football has brought in two talented quarterbacks in Dylan Raiola and Daniel Kaelin. The Huskers are going to have to give the freshman quarterbacks as many reps as possible.

This is a good thing in the sense that it helps the prayer Nebraska better for the future , and it also gives Purdy the opportunity to get a starting spot somewhere else. There may be some bumps in the road with playing freshman quarterbacks. However, the more reps they get, the better.

Development will be crucial for the two, and it’s not as though they lack talent. They both are Elite 11 quarterbacks.

Purdy’s career at Nebraska certainly had ups and downs. However, injuries mostly got in the way. This season, he was battling a groin injury. He still managed to battle through it and start, and had Nebraska on the verge of a bowl game in the season finale against Iowa.

All told, Purdy finished his Nebraska career with 529 passing yards, two touchdowns, and six interceptions.

Hopefully Purdy will be able to land on his feet. He certainly served his role for Nebraska football despite the difficulties he had. It’s a new era for the Huskers in the quarterback room, and this will give Purdy the opportunity to find a new home.
