The speculation regarding this possible transfer destination does not come without warrant.

Adrian Martinez is currently dating a player on the Kansas State women's soccer team and took several visits to Manhattan over the past year to watch her play.

If he does make his way to Manhattan, he'll join a QB room consisting of Will Howard, Jaren Lewis and Jake Rubley.

Through four years as the Cornhuskers' starting quarterback, Martinez logged 8,495 yards, 45 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.
