Quarterback Adrian Martinez will be the first sophomore to represent Nebraska at Big Ten Media Days. Since the Huskers joined the Big Ten Conference in 2011, the team has sent only juniors and seniors to the pre-season event.

Martinez will be joined by senior linebacker Mohamed Barry and senior defensive lineman Khalil Davis. The three players will be in Chicago with Coach Scott Frost on July 18 and 19. 

Frost and the three players are scheduled to speak on Thursday, July 18. They'll join all 14 of the Big Ten's head football coaches and players to answer questions about the offseason, season expectations, and more.

All three of Nebraska’s selections were 2018 all-conference selections or honorable mentions. That includes honorable mention All-Big Ten from both the coaches and media for Martinez, third-team All-Big Ten by the media and honorable mention All-Big Ten for Barry and honorable mention All-Big Ten for Davis.

Here’s a look at who Nebraska has previously sent to Big Ten Media Days:

  • 2018: Mick Stoltenberg (Sr.), Jerald Foster (Sr.), Stanley Morgan (Sr.)
  • 2017: Chris Jones (Sr.), Tanner Lee (Sr.), Chris Weber (Sr.)
