The high school junior reportedly gave his verbal commitment to Frost earlier this week.

Torres chose Nebraska over Kansas State, San Diego State, Tulsa, UNLV, Utah, UTSA and Washington State, all of which had expressed interest in the three-star prospect. He becomes just the fourth player to commit to the Huskers in the class of 2022.

Torres will arrive in Lincoln just at the right time to compete for the starting job. Adrian Martinez, the current No. 1 quarterback for the Huskers will enter his senior year in 2021.

All eyes will be on Nebraska's performance this upcoming fall. If Frost and the Huskers can't turn things around, the program could look drastically different by the time Torres arrives in 2022.
