Nebrich leaving UConn

Sophomore quarterback Michael Nebrich has decided to transfer from UConn.

Nebrich has taken part in UConn's first five practices and in the two practices I saw he seemed to be the most effective quarterback throwing the ball.

I spoke to Nebrich after UConn's first practice about the quarterback situation since it was the day after Chandler Whitmer was named the Huskies' No. 1 quarterback.

"Me and Chandler are good friends," Nebrich said. "We really didn't care who Coach (Paul) Pasqualoni named the starter. Me and him have been working hard the whole offseason and we are going to continue to support each other."

UConn is a little thin at quarterback at the current time as Scott McCummings, primarily used in the Wildcat formation, has been excused from the early portion of practice for personal reasons and highly-regarded freshman Casey Cochran is still recovering from a broken thumb on his left (non throwing) hand leaving Whitmer and last year's starter Johnny McEntee as the only healthy options at the current time.
