As our Indispensable 18 countdowns winds to a close, number two on our list is redshirt freshman quarterback Tristan Gebbia.

The Calabasas, California native redshirted a season ago, but is now poised to compete with Adrian Martinez for the Huskers' starting QB spot.  Gebbia ranks as the second-leading passer in California prep history.

Gebbia showed off his arm strength during this past April's spring game.  The 6'3", 185 pound signal caller completed 12 of 17 passes for 125 yards and two touchdowns.

So as fall camp is set to begin next month, Gebbia and Martinez will battle for the starting quarterback position.  Whichever QB gets the starting role, he will be making his first career start at NU when the Huskers open the 2018 campaign against Akron on Saturday, September 1 at 7 p.m.
