Kade Warner is set to become a Cornhusker.
Warner, the son of legendary NFL quarterback Kurt Warner, announced Thursday night via Twitter that he plans to walk on at Nebraska.
“Thank you Coach Riley and the Nebraska football staff for giving me an opportunity to pursue an academic and collegiate football career at the University of Nebraska,” he said.

Kade Warner, who holds the Arizona high school record for career receptions with 241, held zero Division I FBS offers but narrowed his choices to Nebraska and Arizona State earlier this week. He also visited Iowa and UCLA.
Warner is listed at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds and was rated as a 2-star prospect in the 247Sports composite. He attends Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, Arizona, where his dad is the offensive coordinator.
With the addition of Warner, the Huskers’ 2017 recruiting class now includes the sons of Kurt Warner, former LSU coach Les Miles and Keyshawn Johnson, the former No. 1 overall pick in the 1996 NFL Draft who made three Pro Bowls. Ben Miles is a fullback and Keyshawn Johnson Jr. is a four-star wide receiver.
