Class of 2019 quarterback McCaffrey attends Husker junior day

Class of 2019 quarterback McCaffrey attends Husker junior day

Luke McCaffrey

Luke McCaffrey has been a quarterback, receiver, defensive back and kick returner in high school, but having committed to play at Nebraska, he sees himself as a quarterback.

Nebraska already hosted a trio of four-star recruits before the weekend ever started and had another key junior day set for the weekend. 

A late addition to the attendees: Three-star quarterback Luke McCaffrey. 

The youngest son of Ed and Lisa McCaffrey split time at starting at quarterback for Valor Christian High in Colorado and is in line to be the full-time starter as a senior. Ed, the former standout NFL receiver, is the new head coach at Valor Christian. 

The Huskers welcomed McCaffrey and several other prospects -- four-star offensive lineman Danielson Ike (Kansas City)), seen after practice, cuts an imposing figure -- and put on quite the show. NU extended its live portions of practice out from the normal amount of time and also welcomed more than 110 former players to the Hawks Championship Center.

McCaffrey made his scholarship offer from Mario Verduzco and the Huskers public late last month. He also has offers from Michigan -- older brother Dylan is a freshman signal-caller in Ann Arbor -- Colorado, Colorado State, Duke and several others. 

The Huskers currently have three verbal commitments for 2019 and do not have a quarterback yet for the class.
