SALT LAKE CITY — He’ll no longer be playing for Utah State, but quarterback Henry Colombi will still have some strong ties to the Aggies at his new school.

The junior QB announced Monday afternoon on Twitter that he will play for former Utah State coach Matt Wells at Texas Tech. An Aggies former offensive coordinator, David Yost, is also with the Red Raiders.

In his post, Colombi thanked Aggie Nation and told his USU supporters “Logan will always have a special place in my heart and I’m thankful for my time here.”

Colombi surprised many last week when he put his name in the transfer portal about the same time it was revealed that former Utah quarterback Jason Shelley would be joining the Aggies after leaving the Utes.

A 6-foot-2, 205-pound student-athlete from Hollywood, Florida, Colombi made 13 appearances in two seasons with the Aggies. He was considered the heir apparent for NFL-bound Jordan Love’s quarterback job. Overall, Colombi had 460 yards and two touchdowns passing, while also rushing for a pair of scores and 139 yards.
