Former Nebraska football quarterback Richard Torres has found the school where he will continue his college career, and it seems like a good fit.
When Richard Torres first committed to the Huskers, there was some hope that he could be “the man” at some point in his college football career. Thanks in large part to being in Lincoln for three different head coaches in one year, things didn’t pan out that way and he transferred.
In the grand scheme of things it didn’t take Torres long to find his new home. At first glance, it certainly sounds like it is going to be a good fit for the young man.
Torres announced on Twitter Sunday that he’s now a member of the Incarnate Word Cardinals. It would seem likely that he’ll at least get a chance to compete for a starting spot with the team that had one heck of an offensive attack last year.
The Cardinals are going to be looking for a new quarterback in the very near future too. Lindsey Scott Jr. threw a whopping 60 touchdowns to just seven interceptions, and for more than 4,600 yards is gone. His backup Steven Duncan is also gone.
Former Nebraska football QB finds new home
Richard Torres also joins a program that was one of the best in the FCS, despite just joining the level.
Of course, the former Nebraska football player is going to need to prove that he belongs on that level as well. When there seemed to be a spot for a quarterback to step in last year when Casey Thompson went down, and Logan Smothers and Chubba Purdy were both bad, Torres didn’t get into a game.
Now he’s going to get the chance to show what he can do as a member of Incarnate Word. It will be interesting to see where he goes from here.
