Sports360AZ has learned Purdy will visit Oklahoma on January 11 and then will head to Nebraska for a visit on January 14.
Purdy visited Pitt in mid-December before fellow Arizona quarterback Kedon Slovis transferred to the Panthers.
Quarterback Carousel Could Impact Chubba Purdy’s Decision
Both Oklahoma’s and Nebraska’s quarterback rooms have shifted dramatically since the end of the season.
For Oklahoma and new coach Brent Venables, standout freshman Caleb Williams entered his name in the portal on January 3. Williams has left the door open to return Norman and there are reports he could team up again with Lincoln Riley at USC.
Former UCF quarterback Dillon Gabriel was slated to transfer to UCLA before switching to Oklahoma last week.
For Nebraska, they’ve seen an incumbent starter leave for Kansas State in Adrian Martinez. The Huskers received a commitment from former Texas quarterback Casey Thompson, but that wouldn’t stop Nebraska from taking multiple quarterbacks in the class.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Purdy was a standout at Perry High School where he was a two-year starter for the Pumas. In that time, he passed for 6,391 yards, 69 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He also rushed for 2,210 yards and 41 scores on the ground.
A four-star recruit in the class of 2020, Purdy was one of the first commits after Mike Norvell took the head coaching job at Florida State. He appeared in three games as a true freshman including one start after suffering a collarbone injury. He totaled 219 passing yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 57 yards on 19 carries.
As a sophomore, Purdy completed all five passes he threw for 98 yards and two touchdowns.
It will be a telling week for the Purdy family as Chubba searches for his new college home.
