Tate Martell in the Portal (again)

Froscht

Recruit
Dude was on season one of QB1: Beyond the Lights. It's interesting to look at what's happened to the nine guys who have been on that show in three years. Martelli's not the only one who hasn't liked his situation in college. It's all about playing time and getting to the NFL.

2017:
Tate Martell: Committed to tOSU, transferred to Miami. Headed to school #3 in 2021.
Tayvon Bowers: Committed to Wake Forest. Redshirted in 2017, played in one game in 2018 and four games in 2019. Transferred to Gardner Webb in January 2020 with two years of eligibility left.
Jake Fromm: Played at UGA. 5th round pick by Buffalo in 2020 draft.

2018:
Justin Fields: Committed to UGA, transferred to tOSU. Likely 1st round pick in 2021.
Sam Hartman: Committed to Wake Forest. Threw for over 2,000 yards as their starting QB in 2020.
Re-al Mitchell: Committed to ISU, transferred to Temple in summer 2020. Played in three games this past season. Will probably start for them in 2021 because their former starting QB is now at Michigan State.

2019:
Lance LeGendre: Committed to Maryland. Got beat out by Tagovailoa and transferred to Louisiana for 2021 (the program formerly known as Louisiana Lafayette).
Spencer Rattler: Committed to OU. That game in Norman this fall is probably going to be ugly.
Nik Scalzo: Committed to Kentucky. Tore his ACL before the 2020 season. Will probably be throwing passes to Wan'dale in 2021.

After watching that show and how he and his parents acted. I thought to myself this kid is never ever going to make it or live up to the hype. He is definitely a product of this parents.

Go watch him and his family on that show. Great glimpse into what's happening now.

Like so many others today...stay with Nebraska kids.
 
Not with this offensive scheme. Starting to believe this is what the program, fans, Frost needed. Gotta get back to our roots.
Well, the roots, interesting how it got there. Go to early T.O. and see who his early prized QB were-David Humm and Vince Ferragamo-two non-running throw first QB. (Humm was there when BD was still coach-but remember who was planning on retiring and TO was already in charge of the offense). Remember, TO was a wideout and seemed he saw the value of a forward pass.
If memory is still good, the running and option became the favorite flavor because TO would say that when the Windy and cold November days arrived, throwing was hard.
Seems, Frost inherited zig and worked him into and NFL RB in his offense and then saw the value of Mills power. So looking at the big physical wideouts and the Stepps addition-maybe he is going to incorporate the old school stuff more. That means QB runs-but have to hold the dang ball and keep away from the other team.

Also included in the roots are successful walkons-and Frost knows that and is looking great at it.
