Per ESPN's Adam Rittenberg, Nebraska HC Scott Frost "made it clear" to four-star QB prospect Adrian Martinez that he would have a "great chance to win the starting job."

With Tanner Lee off to the NFL, Frost will start fresh with a new starting quarterback in 2018. Martinez will compete with Patrick O'Brien and Tristan Gebbia for the gig. Martinez (6'3/185) looks tailor-made to run Frost's explosive offensive system. He has been clocked at 4.79 in the 40-yard dash. Martinez is ESPN's No. 56 overall recruit in the 2018 class.

Missouri Southern WR coach Colby Ellis joined the Nebraska staff as a graduate assistant.

Ellis played wide receiver and defensive back at Oklahoma State. He's also coached at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M and West Georgia.

Nebraska QB Tanner Lee will take Mason Rudolph's spot in the Senior Bowl.

Rudolph will miss the game with a left foot sprain. Lee never played like a legitimate NFL prospect in college, but he's got size and arm strength to dream on. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder threw for 3,143 yards and a 23/16 TD/INT rate on 57.5 percent completions last season for 4-8 Nebraska. He's been training with quarterback guru Steve Calhoun recently.

Nebraska DB Joshua Kalu met with the Vikings on Tuesday.

Though the Purple have a tremendous secondary, back-end depth is likely on the offseason shopping list. Kalu, participating in the East-West Shrine Game, has the versatility to play either corner or safety. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder had two interceptions and six breakups in 2017.

Ole Miss freshman LB Breon Dixon transferred to Nebraska.

Dixon (6'0/216) was expected to transfer to the Huskers so long as his visit to Lincoln this weekend went off without a hitch. Check please. Nebraska HC Scott Frost played a major role in prying the former four-star linebacker out of Oxford, with Dixon specifically mentioning on social media the culture change he's seeing with the new head coach. The question, now, is whether Dixon will be given an NCAA waiver to allow him to play immediately during the 2018 season. Normally, he would be an automatic sit-out for the campaign, but because he's coming from an Ole Miss program hit hard by sanctions, there's some hope that the NCAA might be lenient in their treatment of those transferring out.

Nebraska HC Scott Frost told his players after their victory over Auburn in the Peach Bowl that he didn't believe they had a chance to win.

"Coming back and trying to help you win this thing, if I’m keeping it real, I didn’t think we had a damn chance because of all the circumstances surrounding it," Frost reportedly told his team after the victory. "But you guys found a way to dial it in, you found a way to play harder than them." Frost also told his team that he would try and build a team at Nebraska that "have a similar bond" as the one they had at UCF.

Ole Miss freshman LB Breon Dixon is visiting Nebraska this weekend.

Dixon (6'0/216) indicated a week ago that should this visit to Nebraska go well, he plans on transferring to the program. He's intrigued by the possibility of playing under Huskers HC Scott Frost. A four-star recruit in Ole Miss' 2017 recruiting class, Dixon is banking on NCAA leniency with traditional transfer sit-out rules due to the sanctions being levied against the Rebs. We still have yet to hear whether that will be the case. Without a waiver, Dixon would have to sit out the 2018 season.

Three-star 2018 JUCO WR Mike Williams verbally committed to play at Nebraska.

Williams (5'10/182) comes to the Cornhuskers from East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Mississippi. If that school sounds familiar, it might be because it's the school that's subject of two seasons of the Netflix documentary Last Chance U. He's ranked the tenth best junior college wideout by 247 Sports, and he caught 30 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns for EMCC in 2017.

Nebraska promoted Barrett Ruud to inside linebackers coach.

Ruud came over to the Huskers along with HC Scott Frost after spending the past two seasons at UCF as a defensive quality control administrator. Unlike during his time with the Knights, he'll have an on-field staff role with Nebraska. As with Frost, this is a homecoming of sorts for Ruud, who finished his career as Nebraska's all-team leading tackler after putting up 432 stops while playing linebacker in Lincoln during the early 2000's.

UCF sophomore QB Noah Vedral transferred to Nebraska.

Vedral (6'2/190) played well in limited action behind starter McKenzie Milton during the 2017 season, hitting on 22-of-29 passes for 276 yards and a touchdown while chipping in with 77 yards and two scores as a runner over the course of six games played. He'll have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations and will have two years eligibility remaining come the start of the 2019 season. Vedral -- who hails from Nebraska -- was a three-star recruit coming out of high school as part of the 2016 cycle.

Ole Miss freshman LB Breon Dixon said that he will transfer to Nebraska so long as his upcoming visit goes well.

Dixon (6'0/216) was considering a transfer to Wisconsin before Nebraska began showing him interest in December. Huskers HC Scott Frost is the big draw, here. Said the true frosh linebacker, "Coach Frost wants to build it at Nebraska just like they did at UCF." It would be a sizable transfer for the program, as Dixon was a four-star recruit for the 2017 cycle, ranking as Rivals' No. 19 outside linebacker in the class. He registered five tackles during his inaugural campaign with the Rebels. Dixon is hoping that the NCAA will be loosening transfer restrictions in the fallout of sanctions at Ole Miss, which would allow him immediate eligibility at Nebraska.
Jan 5 - 5:20 PM

Nebraska junior WR Stanley Morgan will return for the 2018 season.

Morgan (6'1/195) was eligible to declare for the draft as a junior, but will be sticking it out in Lincoln for HC Scott Frost's first year at the helm. The 2017 campaign was Morgan's best at the collegiate level, as he logged a 61-986-10 receiving line while averaging 16.2 yards per reception. Both the yardage and touchdown marks were second-best for the Big Ten.
Jan 4 - 12:14 PM

Nebraska junior T Nick Gates will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Gates (6'5/290) was a 12-game starter at left tackle for the Huskers this season. He earned All-Big Ten honorable mention from coaches and media for his work on the campaign. Both Walter Football and Draft Analyst view Gates as a Day 3 selection for the spring. He has upside toward the fourth round with a strong evaluating process. His exit for the NFL Draft will require new Nebraska HC Scott Frost to reevaluate the program's offensive line -- over the past three seasons, Gates has played almost all of the team's offensive snaps.
Jan 2 - 12:52 PM

UCF OC Troy Walters will move on to Nebraska to become their new offensive coordinator.

Walters is one of several coaches who will follow Frost to Nebraska, with Walters calling the decision a "no brainer." He was a potential candidate to replace Frost at UCF, but the job ended up going to Josh Heupel. If Walters can put up similar offense numbers with the Cornhuskers in the Big 10, he could be a candidate for much bigger head coaching jobs in 2019.
Jan 1 - 2:45 PM

Nebraska redshirt junior QB Tanner Lee will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Lee made his announcement on Twitter, thanking his coaches and the Nebraska fans while declaring. He finished the year with 3,143 yards passing and 23 touchdowns, but also threw 16 interceptions and with a 57.6 completion percentage. He's currently projected as a late-round pick, but with his arm strength, he could see that stock rise if he tests well and performs in his pro day.
