Pack Pride has learned that quarterback Harrison Beck is transferring from Nebraska to NC State.
According to sources close to NC State, Beck is in Raleigh today going through the admission's process. After receiving a release from Nebraska, his acceptance into State is considered to be a formality.
Beck sat the first ten games of his true freshman year but burned his redshirt late last year for the Huskers, stepping in for a 27-25 victory over Kansas State on Nov. 12 after starting quarterback Zac Taylor suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter.
He missed his first four passes and threw an interception on the fifth, but Beck bounced back to lead the Huskers on a seven-play, 55-yard drive, capped by a game-winning 40 yard field goal.
He will miss the 2006 season due to NCAA transfer rules but will have three years to play three seasons for the Wolfpack starting in 2007.
As a senior at Clearwater (FL) Countryside, Beck was regarded as one of the nation's top quarterback prospects. He was tabbed a four-star prospect and the No. 11 quarterback in the country by Scout.com, choosing Nebraska over offers from Florida, Florida State, NC State, Michigan, Mississippi, and Purdue among others.
