Nebraska’s new head coach announced on Sunday morning that true freshman Adrian Martinez will be starting under center. Martinez becomes the first true freshman in program history to start the season opener.The Huskers, though, don’t have much depth behind the first-year QB.Redshirt freshman Tristan Gebbia is reportedly transferring out of the program after losing the starting quarterback competition. He’s one of a couple of QBs to leave Lincoln, Neb. this offseason/preseason.Frost said the following of his competition earlier this week.“It was close,” Frost told reporters. “We picked the guy that we felt would give us the best chance to win. It didn’t matter who we picked, we were going to be a playing a quarterback who hadn’t taken a live football snap in two years.”Nebraska does have another scholarship QB on its roster in UCF transfer Noah Vedral, but he’s ineligible to play this summer.Hopefully for the Huskers, Martinez can stay healthy.Nebraska starting a Freshman at QB named Martinez, and he’s a dual-threat from California.Feels like 2010 pic.twitter.com/KtkbAlEVum— Pick Six Previews (@PickSixPreviews) August 26, 2018Nebraska is set to open its season on Saturday against Akron.last_img read more
