Nebraska quarterback Tristan Gebbia was officially granted his release Tuesday and will be leaving the Huskers, coach Scott Frost confirmed. 

Monday afternoon, KMTV confirmed that Gebbia was no longer enrolled in classes at UNL after  Husker Online's Nate Clouse  first-reported the second-string quarterback is leaving the program. 

Over the weekend it was announced that true freshman Adrian Martinez edged out the Gebbia, a redshirt freshman, to win NU's starting quarterback job.  

Nebraska coach Scott Frost said Gebbia was not at practice Monday.

Gebbia was the second-leading passer in California prep history in his time at Calabasas High School. He threw for 13,109 yards and 141 touchdowns in his career. 

With Gebbia transferring, former walk-on Andrew Bunch will now be Nebraska's backup week one. The junior from Tennessee is a former JUCO-transfer and was the Huskers' number-three quarterback in 2017. 

On the Big Ten teleconference today Scott Frost said the team is also looking in to a waiver to allow Wahoo-native Noah Vedral to play this season. The Bishop-Neumann grad was Frost's backup at Ccentral Florida in 2017.
