Offseason updates from Husker football

Scott Frost talked with reporters Thursday afternoon following the second signing date and gave insight on where this team stands.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Scott Frost spoke with the media Thursday afternoon amidst a rather chaotic offseason with new recruits joining the program and others entering the portal.

Frost first addressed the quarterback position as Luke McCaffrey’s departure from the program surprised many just over a week ago. But before he makes any decision on adding any transfers, Frost says he wants to see how his two young QB’s adjust in the next few months.

“I didn’t want to make any quick moves that might be mistakes,” Frost said.

Besides veteran quarterback Adrian Martinez, the Husker still have redshirt freshman QB Logan Smothers as well as Kearney Catholic’s Heinrich Haarberg.

Other notes from today:

The 2021 season is scheduled to begin Week 0 in Dublin, Ireland against Illinois, but as of right now, Frost doesn’t seem to optimistic that will happen.

Myles Farmer and Javin Thomas will possibly be available for spring following injuries this past season.

The team is close to making an announcement on hiring a new special team analyst and director of player personnel.

As far as Super Bowl weekend, Scott Frost will be cheering on the Buccaneers due to Nebraska ties but still enjoys watching the Chiefs and their offensive creativity.
