The news was confirmed by Big Red Report on Saturday, after the Omaha World Herald was first to report the soon to be senior's decision.
"Yeah it's true," said Bubak in a text. "Honestly it was after the coaching change I looked elsewhere just in case. After visiting Arizona State and really connecting with their staff, them laying out exactly what they wanted me and how I would fit into their offense was the biggest reason why."
Bubak was the first player to commit to the Huskers in 2016 class, pledging his services to Nebraska in September of 2014. But, shortly after Bo Pelini and staff were fired and Mike Riley took over, the local product went silent with reporters leading many to believe something was in the works.
Just three days priors to Bubak announcing his decision, the Huskers did receive word Regis Jesuit high school tight end Jack Stoll was jumping in the class. The tight end appears to be a prospect who will fill into Riley's offensive system well.
