Nebraska's quarterback room got smaller Thursday when sophomore A.J. Bush announced on Twitter he was transferring from the program. Alvin Bush, AJ's father, confirmed to the World-Herald that he and AJ told coach Mike Riley of the decision Thursday.

AJ Bush didn't immediately answer texts or calls from the World-Herald. Alvin Bush said his son is looking at transferring to an FBS school or potentially a junior college.

The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder is in search for a better opportunity at playing time, said Alvin Bush. A 2014 recruit, AJ spent two seasons behind long-term starter Tommy Armstrong. He didn't play in a game during his time at NU. Bush was in competition for the No. 3 job this year behind Armstrong and backup Ryker Fyfe and he would have competed for the starting job next season with true freshman Patrick O'Brien and Tanner Lee, who will be a junior once he sits out the 2016 season after transferring from Tulane.
