Nebraska quarterback commit Patrick O'Brien's huge senior year continues

Nebraska quarterback commit Patrick O'Brien's huge senior year continues.

At this point, nothing appears to be slowing down Nebraska quarterback commit Patrick O'Brien from San Juan Hills high school in California. 

O'Brien entered Friday night with nearly 600 total passing yards through two games, throwing eight touchdowns and running for 120 yards on the ground. 

It's hard to believe, but the senior was even better in his third contest. 

According to Jason Eichelberger of, OBrien threw for five touchdowns against Capo Valley. While his final game stats were not available, O'Brien was 16-of-23 for 249 yards and four touchdowns in the first half. He also rushed 11 times for 80 yards. In all, he combined for 444 total yards. 

“We just took what the defense gave us and it was a good game all around,” O’Brien told OCSidelines. “We blocked well and our receivers made a lot of great plays.

San Juan Hills won the game 58-21, improving to 3-0 on the season. The Stallions finished the year 4-7 last year. 

“He is obviously a difference maker and it’s fun to watch,” San Juan Hills coach Aaron Flowers told OCSidelines. “The stuff that people don’t see is that he completely manages the game for us on every snap.”

With former quarterback commit Terry Wilson switching his verbal to Oregon, O'Brien is the only quarterback in the 2016 class for Nebraska. While the Huskers' coaching staff might be open to another quarterback in the 2016 class, they will not force the issue and look for a solid prospect.
