Ole Miss lost out on its top quarterback target in the Class of 2017 Monday, as four-star quarterback Tristan Gebbia committed to Nebraska via Twitter.
“God has blessed me with a lot of great options that were all potentially great fits for me, and I’d like to thank the coaches and programs who believed in my abilities and offered me a scholarship,” Gebbia posted on Twitter. “After sitting down and talking with my family, I’ve decided that the best place for me to grow as a man and a football player is at the University of Nebraska!
“I’m excited to be a part of Nebraska football. A lot of hard work is ahead. Go Big Red! All glory to God.”
The nation’s eighth-best pro-style quarterback, who visited Ole Miss last weekend, chose the Cornhuskers over the Rebels despite being an Ole Miss legacy. Both of Gebbia’s parents attended Ole Miss, and his father, Rich, played tight end for the Rebels.
Ole Miss will now likely turn its attention towards four-star Tua Tagovailoa, who is rated as the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the country.
