I still think gebbia wins out next year- Martinez red shirts. Then the next year Martinez wins job. 

 

Having three 4-star QBs who are underclassmen is a nice problem to have for a new coach. :)

Adrian Martinez becomes Scott Frost's first quarterback recruit; Dual-threat QB will enroll early at Nebraska

Quote

“They made a good impression on me,” Martinez said Wednesday. “I had a feeling in my heart — Nebraska’s the place I want to be. I want to play for those coaches. I want to play in front of those fans. And I want to go win. And I’m confident in their message and who they are as people and as coaches that we can really accomplish some special things.”

So do we call him A-mart? A-Magic? Martinez 2.0? 

 

Definately got flashbacks watching his film. He definately has the speed and running style down. Though he's got to work on falling backwards as he throws.

this would have been an incredible recruiting class if we could have kept the guys that decommitted.

 

still a chance to be a very good class.

I’ll be honest, i always hated T-Magic. It’s a horrible nickname.

Here's where Nebraska's program is metaphorically:

 

 

 

Really nice to see NU coming out on top of these other programs that had offered Adrian Martinez.
This kid could turn out to be Frost's (first) Husker version of Marcus Mariotta.

I like this kid's mentality. 

If he ran that as a sophomore I wouldnt be surprised to see him run a mid to high 4.5 range as college freshman.

 QB commits are huge and this is a big one from the West Coast for new head coach Scott Frost. This kid could be the best of the Cali QB commits for Nebraska in recent years.

Please none of those.  Those were beat to death when Taylor M was here.  I'm guessing his momma would want you to call him Adrian.

No way I can listen...I'm hoping someone gives a brief breakdown like many have in the past.

As someone who supports all things Rocky anything that could possibly increase the chance of getting the Rocky theme song (or Rocky training montage music) played at Nebraska games is a-ok with me.

The more I read about Adrian, the more I think he may just play as a true freshman. Particularly if there are injury concerns for Gebbia, with his size. I can see Adrian not redshirting and being the #2 QB as a true freshman.

Not sure how he was timed, etc. but going from 4.8 to 4.5 is highly unlikely.  Now if it were 4.65 to 4.50, yes, I can see that.  But by time you're a soph, you have most of your speed already developed.  Often you add weight and might lose a couple tenths or more.  Depends on how tall he was, etc.  If he was in mid growth spurt, yea, he can be a little clumsy during that time.  But  I'd say, based on the film, he is faster than 4.8.   He is likely faster, relatively speaking, in about 50 or 60 yards than in the short bursts.  To run 4.5 or less, you need to be very very quick and accelerate like crazy.  He shows more than adequate speed to run some option.  I would like him to be 6-3 and 215 or so but we will have to make due.   We need to focus on those short squatty O linemen Milt Tenopir liked (6-2 295) that can move their feet and can stay low and push.  I feel your QB needs to be nearly as tall or ideally taller than half the linemen as he needs to see over the middle somewhat.

I coach sprinters for a Class A program and was a multi-time All-American in college Track and Field.  This post, specifically the bolded portion, is so inaccurate it is laughable.

Track guys are not football players.   Most are lighter framed and don't add the weight.  track guys gain speed through practice at running.  They are not on the football field wearing pads and trying to be stronger and more physical.   Imo.  Many likely trim times by being better at running.  They get quicker starts and anticipate the start 'gun' etc.  Yes, some guys can 'learn' to run faster but I doubt seriously can take a 11.6 hundred guy and make him 10 flat.  Relatively speaking, that's about what your saying.

No. Just no. You’re really trying to argue sophmores are faster than they will be their senior year? With all the football players I’ve played with and know this has never happened.

I never said sophs are faster than seniors.   I did say that the difference in speed, of the two will be relatively modest if the kid gains 30 or 40 pounds, which many football players tend to do, in that aging process.   We are talking what he will run at NU aren't we?    Who cares what he runs his senior year in H.S.   We are also talking in general.  Specific individuals vary.  Heck, some guys don't really physically grow up until their early 20s.   I know a guy who graduate at age 18 and was 5-7.  By time he was 24, he was 5-11.   That is rare.   Most Huskers football recruits grow perhaps 1 or at most 2 inches from h.s. graduation day until their senior year of college.  Many hardly grow at all.  Some will fill out and can improve their speed but you are not going to teach a slow guy to be lightning fast.   You either have speed or you don't, for the most part.  imo

 

4.8 is NOT fast by my definition but 4.5 is.   You are talking 6 or 7 yards difference in th 40 between winner and loser I'd guess.   Lots of high school players can run in the 4.8 range I'd say.  That is probably 'average' for the faster guys on most high school football teams I'd guess.

Eric Crouch was pretty fast and I recall he ran around 10.6 hundred in state track meet.  Probably ran about 4.5 flat in the forty.  

Bobby Newcomb was extremely fast but I don't recall what his 100 time was but he had strides like a deer and probably excelled in the 200.  Just a gues.  He was a quick as Crouch but I think would beat Eric by 4 yards or more in the 100.  He'd be pulling away at 80 yard mark.

I thought T-Mobile was the only slightly clever one for Taylor, but it never really caught on.

 

Would have foreshadowed his android/ipone app development company that he now has as well.

Literally my entire sprint crew are football players that lift and prepare for football all winter.  And no, I am not saying that.  You are clueless here man.

Couldnt agree more. Most football players between their sophomore year of high school and by the time they leave college are all larger and faster. As a sophomore in track I was an 11.4 guy and as a senior I was a 10.8 guy. So to think that a kid like this who is receiving much better training and nutrition than I did when I was a kid is crazy talk. Also in football as a sophomore I was a high 4.7 guy and I was a mid 4.5 guy as a senior. So I have ZERO doubt that kid would run a 4.5 now.
