Nebraska football has made some big signings during National Signing Day to help round out its roster for the 2018 college football season. However, the Cornhuskers also signed a number of players during the early signing period in December, and one of those players was quarterback Adrian Martinez.
Prior to making his official visit to Nebraska on Dec. 8, Martinez was committed to Tennessee. However, five days after he visited Nebraska, Martinez de-committed from Tennessee and committed to Nebraska. He went on to sign his letter of intent with the Huskers on Dec. 20.
Martinez had such a great experience during his visit to Nebraska that it was enough for him to change his mind on which school he wanted to attend.
In a video released by Nebraska football on Twitter, Martinez recaps his experience during his visit to Nebraska.
He didn't know what to expect on his visit, but @MartinezTheQB quickly found out there is NO PLACE like Nebraska.

“I didn’t really know what to expect about my official visit when I came here,” Martinez said in the video. “It was a great experience. Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met, and just real hospitality from everywhere, from the restaurants I went to, even the hotel, and then, of course, the program here and the people involved. Everything has been the same [since], it wasn’t just for my official visit.”
Martinez is ranked the No. 139 overall prospect in the 2018 recruiting class, according to 247 Sports. In addition, he was ranked as the No. 7 dual-threat quarterback in the class and the No. 21 prospect in California.
