After stop at Kansas State, ex-Nebraska QB Adrian Martinez visiting Pac-12 program
Last week, 4-year starter Nebraska QB Adrian Martinez announced he is entering the transfer portal. Martinez has been making his rounds at different schools ever since he departed from Lincoln.
Martinez visited Kansas State this past weekend and is now on a visit to Cal. Interestingly enough, at one point, the former 4-star QB was committed to Cal according to Collin Kennedy of 247sports.com.
Kennedy of 247sport.com provides more context on the developing situation:
Sources: Former Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez, after a visit to Kansas State, is set to visit Cal on Tuesday.
The transfer portal signal caller was previously committed to the Golden Bears as a recruit.

In 4 seasons with the Huskers, Martinez was 670-of-1,055 for a 63.5% completion rate, throwing for 8,495 yards, 45 touchdowns, and 30 interceptions. He ran the ball exceptionally well as a Husker; Martinez carried the ball 506 times for 2,288 yards on 4.5 yards per carry and 35 touchdowns.
One of the only things Martinez did not get to do with the Huskers was play in a bowl game. The Huskers finished an abysmal 3-9 and were only 1-8 in B1G play. The Huskers’ only win in B1G play was against lowly Northwestern.
A silver lining, some may say, is that the Huskers were in every single game this season and lost every game by single digits.
It was another disappointing and frustrating season for the Husker faithful, and now they have to await offensive coaching changes. The Husker coaching staff needs to find someone who can replace Martinez’s production. It’s going to be a long winter for the fans of the Scarlet and Cream.
