Football: Pelini to visit Centennial's Martinez

January 25, 2009 | 10:23 pm

Martinez_2 Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini is scheduled to pay a home visit to Corona Centennial quarterback Taylor Martinez this week. Martinez wants to play quarterback for Nebraska, which already has a prized incoming quarterback recruit in Cody Green of Dayton, Texas.

Green and Martinez reportedly spent a lot of time together during a recent visit to Lincoln. Nebraska has recruited Martinez as an "athlete" but has told The Times' Glenn Davis Award winner that he would have a chance to compete for the quarterback spot.
