Signing day has passed, but Nebraska remains in the running for a 2017 recruit with a familiar last name.
According to Sam McKewon of Omaha.com, WR Kade Warner, son of soon-to-be-Hall-of-Famer Kurt Warner, is mulling an offer to be a preferred walk-on with the Cornhuskers.
Warner received no FBS scholarship offers despite setting an Arizona state record for career receptions. According to the report, he has PWO offers from Arizona State, UCLA and Iowa, in addition to the Huskers.
247Sports’ composite rankings list Warner as a 2-star recruit and the No. 487 receiver in the Class of 2017.
Kurt Warner is perhaps the most famous late bloomer in NFL history. He went undrafted out of Northern Iowa and famously spent time in the Arena Football League and throwing rolls of toilet paper while working at a grocery store as practice. He would go on to throw for 32,344 yards in a 12-year NFL career that included 2 NFL MVP Awards, three Super Bowl appearances, one Super Bowl win and MVP of Super Bowl XXXIV.
Last week, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Warner was one of seven former players elected to its 2017 class.
