Default Nebraska backup QB Beck leaving team

Highly touted Nebraska backup QB leaving teamAssociated Press

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska backup quarterback Harrison Beck is leaving the Cornhuskers.

"I'm disappointed that things occurred the way they did," coach Bill Callahan said after practice Monday. "I was hopeful that [the situation] could be rectified. But it's Harrison's choice."

Callahan said he spoke with Beck earlier in the day and the sophomore would be released from his scholarship.

Beck was a no-show at practice Friday and Saturday.

Beck's mother, Evelyn Beck-Bothwell, told Nebraska media outlets on Saturday that her son was disappointed with the amount of practice repetitions he received the first two days of preseason camp.

Considered one of the top Nebraska recruits in 2005, Beck burned his redshirt late last season when he replaced injured starter Zac Taylor in a 27-25 victory over Kansas State on Nov. 12.

Beck missed his first four passes and threw an interception on the fifth against the Wildcats, then led the Huskers on a seven-play, 55-yard drive, capped by a game-winning 40 yard field goal.

The Clearwater, Fla. native turned down scholarship offers from Florida, Florida State and Miami to come to Nebraska and was ranked as high as No. 3 nationally among pro-style quarterbacks by one recruiting service.

It's amazing how something good happens for Nebraska in a sense of Rhett Bomar leaving Oklahoma, making a possible Big XII South Champ weaker, then bad news as Nebraska loses it's #1 corner for the season to injury, and now their backup QB leaves the team.

That's the second QB in the past three years isn't it? I know the kid that started when Callahan first took over is competing for the starting job at UNC this year.
