Nebraska head coach Scott Frost announced on Sunday morning that Adrian Martinez would be starting at quarterback on Saturday against Akron. Martinez, a four-star recruit in the 2018 class, becomes the first-ever true freshman to start at QB Week 1 for Nebraska.

Martinez, a dual-threat prospect formerly committed to Tennessee, won the starting job over Tristan Gebbia, another former four-star recruit.

Gebbia was considered the favorite to win the job by many, but Martinez ended up being too impressive to sit.

What does this mean for Gebbia's future in Lincoln, Neb.? That is unclear.

According to reports, Gebbia did not practice today. He is reportedly weighing his options, a.k.a. considering a transfer.

"Tristan Gebbia didn’t practice Monday. Weighing his options," Christopher Heady reports.

Frost told reporters that Gebbia initially took the news of being QB2 well, but added that he wants players who want to be here. At this point, it is unclear if Gebbia does actually want to stay at Nebraska as the backup quarterback.

Gebbia committed to Nebraska when Mike Riley was the Huskers' head coach. He was ranked the No. 9 pro-style QB in the country coming out of high school by 247Sports' Composite Rankings.
