Nebraska's WR room garners praise from Scott Frost, Adrian Martinez
Both head coach Scott Frost and quarterback Adrian Martinez really like what Nebraska has in the wide receiver room this year. They made it pretty clear while meeting with reporters on Thursday afternoon.
Nebraska enters the 2021 season with the expectation of returning to a bowl game and showing dramatic improvement after a 3-5 year last fall. This year will be Frost’s most experienced teams and should see improvement on both sides of the ball.
A big reason why Frost is excited about the upcoming season is because of the depth and talent at wide receiver. There’s a lot to like about what’s in the room right now.
“It’s the most depth and talent we’ve had since I’ve been at Nebraska,” Frost said of the receivers.
While the Huskers did lose Wan’Dale Robinson to transfer, they still have Zavier Betts, Omar Manning, Oliver Martin, Alante Brown and Samori Toure in the room. There should be more than enough options to find a playmaker.
The abundance of talent at the position should also help quarterback Adrian Martinez, who struggled at times during the 2020 season. He also seems pretty hopeful about the skill the wideouts bring to the field.
“I think with a lot of guys in that room, there’s just another level to be unlocked,” Martinez said.
Martinez also said he was particularly excited to see what Betts could do during the 2021 season.
Nebraska is scheduled to begin fall camp on Friday. The Huskers take the field in Week 0 against Illinois in Champaign to kickoff the 2021 season.
