Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini issued the following statement Sunday evening regarding the status of sophomore quarterback Patrick Witt.
"Patrick has decided that it is in his best interest to continue his college career at another school. Patrick is a great kid from a great family and I appreciate the contributions he has made to our football program. I wish him nothing but the best in the future and know he will be a success wherever he goes."
Witt played in five games as a red-shirt freshman, attempting just eight passes.
