Athlon Sports ranks Nebraska #19 in their “Early Top 25 for 2019”

Athlon Sports: “Nebraska was trending up over the second half of 2018 and should take another step forward in ’19. Dynamic freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez helped coach Scott Frost’s offense average 30 points a game this fall, and this unit should be even better with another offseason to work under this staff. Maurice Washington is primed for a breakout year as Devine Ozigbo’s replacement at running back, while JD Spielman becomes the go-to receiver with Stanley Morgan Jr. out of eligibility. Frost has a few holes to fill up front with center Tanner Farmer and guard Jerald Foster departing Lincoln.”

247Sports: Is a preseason spot inside the Top 20 too high for the Huskers? There’s no doubt Nebraska will be improved, but this could be setting the bar a bit too extreme unless Frost’s team can start hot in September and gain early momentum — something they failed to do in 2018.
