Adrian Martinez may have played in his last game as a member of the Nebraska soccer team.

Adrian Martinez came to Nebraska with a lot of hype and potential. He and Scott Frost got to Lincoln together, but after a 3-9 season that ended with Martinez unable to play due to injury, Martinez may have played his last game for the Cornhuskers.

Although he could potentially return to Lincoln for another season, Frost and the rest of the Cornhuskers program will have big changes to make before 2022.

Martinez had a lot of talent coming out of high school, but after 38 starts he may need a change of scenery if he is looking to play college football for another year. Several schools recruited him from high school when he was a four-star recruit and the No. 7 quarterback with two threats, according to the 247 Sports Composite Leaderboardsso he has other options.

Here are five programs Martinez could roll over and play into his final college football season.

Adrian Martinez: 5 Potential Transfer Targets for a Nebraska Quarterback

Arizona State is an option for Adrian Martinez

One place to watch out for when it comes to acquiring a transfer quarterback is in the state of Arizona. Though Herm Edwards has brought some stability to The Valley, 2022 is the year he will need the Sun Devils to battle for a Pac-12 South title. While the native Californian Martinez could move closer to his home, so could the former Oklahoma starter and the native Phoenix master Spencer Rattler.

The Colorado Buffaloes need a spark, maybe Martinez can deliver that?

Things didn’t go well for Karl Dorrell in his second season at the helm in Boulder. The Colorado Buffaloes went bowling in 2020, but have already lost seven games in Utah. Colorado is a historic rival to Nebraska, so Martinez may be interested in playing for the Buffs. Under the direction of Dorrell, however, the program is on shaky ground.

While it makes sense for Martinez to move to either of the two Pac-12 schools, those three other schools are his most likely targets.
