LINCOLN — More than once during the 2012 season, Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez said he wanted his younger brother, Drake, to join him on the football team.
Now, it’ll happen. Drake Martinez became the 23rd commit for NU’s 2013 recruiting class late Wednesday night. Husker Online first reported the news, and Taylor and Drake’s father, Casey Martinez, confirmed the commit in an email to The World-Herald. Drake Martinez wasn’t immediately available for comment.
