Tristan Gebbia talks Nebraska

California prep Tristan Gebbia talked with Scout.com about Nebraska and his new offers.

After not getting a chance to see him during the spring evaluation, Nebraska was hoping Calabasas high school (CA) 2017 quarterback Tristan Gebbia would be able to make it one of their Friday Night Light camps in the coming weeks.

“I’m not able to make it,” said Gebbia, who talked about what’s next when it comes to Nebraska. “I’m pretty sure they are going to keep talking to me and I might make it to a game this season in the fall. We will take it from there.

“I think Coach Riley is a great coach and has done some great things in football. They ran an offense at Oregon State that I liked a lot with Mannion, so I’m interested in what they are doing.”

The soon to be junior already visited Nebraska in March, but didn’t reel in an offer at the time. Currently schools like Alabama, Arizona State, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami and Syracuse have extended a scholarship nod to the California prep.

“I have been just putting my head down and working as hard as I can, waiting to see how things work out,” said Gebbia, who stands at 6-foot-3, 185-pounds. “I wouldn’t say that I’m surprised, because I feel like I have been working hard to get what I have gotten. I’m really blessed and happy with what I have right now. I would say that I’m excited about the future.”

Gebbia was asked if Alabama, who’s a perennial top five team in the country, is a big offer?

“They were, but they are all,” said Gebbia. “Everyone who has offered me is a great school and I would be very lucky to attend.”

As a sophomore, Gebbia passed for 2,996 yards and 30 touchdowns. One of his biggest targets is Keyshawn Johnson Jr., who also holds a Nebraska offer.

Gebbia will attend Arizona State’s camp on June 14th.
