Frost impressed with composure of Husker freshman Martinez

Adrian Martinez showed last Saturday why he was one of the first Huskers to be offered by new Nebraska head coach Scott Frost. 

The true freshman rushed for three touchdowns in the Spring Game, while throwing for another. 

"The one thing that really impresses me is his composure as an 18 year old that should still be in high school to come out and do some good things," said Frost. "So that was a good job but I thought all four handled the situation really well."

Martinez was the recruit from Fresno, California whom Frost flew across the country to visit while he was also preparing UCF to play in the Peach Bowl last December. 

"I think actions can really show a man's true intentions," Martinez said of Frost. "Him flying all the way out to see my family and myself for dinner, I think that showed how much he really wanted me to come be a part of this program."
