“I am so thankful to be given another opportunity to play football at another amazing university,” O’Brien wrote. “With that I am excited to announce my commitment to Colorado State.”
O’Brien left Nebraska in the spring, parting ways with the program after two seasons. He redshirted in 2016 and was Tanner Lee’s backup in 2017. A pro-style quarterback who was recruited by former Nebraska coach Mike Riley, O’Brien was not an ideal fit in Scott Frost’s up-tempo offense.
“I want to thank Coach Frost and all of his staff. The short time I spent with them was great, and I learned a lot, but it just wasn’t the right fit,” O’Brien wrote in a message after he left Nebraska.
