Less than one week before the season opener, Nebraska has finalized its starting quarterback plans. Adrian Martinez will be the starter.
It is an announcement that should excite Husker fans. Martinez, a four-star recruit, was one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the 2018 class.
New Nebraska head coach Scott Frost flipped Martinez from Tennessee last December. It was one of the first things he did after being hired at his alma mater.
Martinez impressed enough during the offseason to earn the starting role. It seems like ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit is a fan of the move.
On Twitter today, Herbstreit said he "loved" to see Martinez get the nod.
Martinez was the No. 7 dual-threat quarterback in the 2019 class, according to 247Sports' Composite Rankings.
Nebraska opens up the Scott Frost (and Adrian Martinez) Era on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
The game will be broadcast on FOX.
