Patrick Witt Leaves the Nebraska Huskers Program

Jeff WilliamsAnalyst IFebruary 23, 2009

Nebraska Cornhuskers QB Patrick Witt has decided to leave the program.

Patrick was set to compete this spring for the starting QB position with new recruit Cody Green, Kody Spano, and Zac Lee.

One can assume this has everything to do with the competition at QB and feeling among the Witt family that Patrick would be better served at a different program.

The 6'4" freshman from Wylie, TX was 6-8 for 45 yards in 2008. In the Gator Bowl, he was in for one controversial play where Witt appeared to fumble the ball but the play was overturned. The play would've given Clemson great field position in the fourth quarter.

In fairness to Witt, a more conservative play should have been called.

This now means the 2009 Nebraska Cornhuskers belong to Zac Lee:

Zac Lee: The man to lead the 2009 Huskers to the Big 12 Title

Zac Lee: The man to lead the 2009 Huskers to the Big 12 Title
