Red-White Spring Game, 4/15

Nebraska offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf watches a replay on the big video board in the second half during the Red-White Spring Game on Saturday, April 15, 2017, at Memorial Stadium.

The Huskers are on the search for a quarterback in the 2019 class, and that search includes one target just an hour's drive away.

Nebraska has now extended an offer to Max Duggan, a standout QB at Lewis Central High School in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Duggan, whose high school head coach is his father, Jim Duggan, has already become a player of heavy interest to various schools schools in Big Ten and Big 12 country.

Prior to his Husker offer, he already had scholarship invites from Iowa, Penn State, Minnesota, Kansas State, Iowa State, and also North Carolina.

You could call Duggan a dual-threat QB. While he threw for 1,651 yards and 15 last fall, he also ran for 592 and 14 touchdowns. His TD/INT ratio was 3 to 1, throwing five picks on the season.

While NU could pass on a QB in the 2018 class, the Huskers will obviously be looking for someone who can add to the competition in the next class. Nebraska had also been heavily recruiting Grant Gunnell, out of Houston, Texas, but on Monday he announced his commitment to Texas A&M.

Whether coincidence or not that the Huskers offered Duggan on the same day, Gunnell appears to be off the board.
