Matt Rhule and Nebraska football dipped into the transfer portal last offseason for a quarterback, but Jeff Sims was a disaster.
The former Georgia Tech quarterback struggled with turnovers, as all the Nebraska football quarterbacks did this season.
If the Huskers had just an average quarterback, they would be going bowling, instead, they finished 5-7 after Chubba Purdy threw late interceptions in losses to Maryland and Iowa at home.
Many Nebraska football fans have been talking about Will Howard on Twitter. Some have even joked about him being a player to be named later in a trade for Martinez, who transferred from Nebraska to Kansas State before the 2022 season.
Howard is a really solid play-action passer though and he seems like exactly the kind of quarterback Nebraska needs.
The Huskers have a solid running game and a damn good defense. With a quarterback like Will Howard, it seems like getting back to the postseason next year wouldn’t be much of an issue.
