Luke McCaffrey, the youngest son of former NFL star Ed McCaffrey, has vowed to play soccer in Nebraska.
A double threat quarterback ranked 149 on ESPN 300 for the Clbad of 2019, Luke McCaffrey announced his decision on Twitter on Monday after a courtship led by Mario Verduzco, the quarterback coach for the first-year coach of the Cornhuskers, Scott Frost.

McCaffrey, 1.83 meters and 183 pounds, pitched for 878 Yard and ran for 548 last year at Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, while playing as a substitute for Blake Stenstrom of Colorado.
The sixth commitment for this Nebraska recruiting clbad, chose the Cornhuskers for scholarship offers from Ohio, Michigan, Colorado, Washington and Ole Miss.
McCaffrey follows the footsteps of his brothers' soccer, in addition to his father, who played as a receiver in the NFL for 13 years.
Christian McCaffrey was the runner for the 2016 Heisman Trophy at Stanford and is currently running for the Carolina Panthers; Dylan McCaffrey became a rookie quarterback last fall in Michigan; and Max McCaffrey played as a receiver at Duke and is currently with the San Francisco 49ers.
Luke McCaffrey also played as a receiver and defender in Valor Christian. He is the number one senior in Colorado and the nationally qualified double threat QB.
