(Photo by Eric Francis/Getty Images)Nebraska football has its quarterback of the future—and present—in Adrian Martinez, but that isn’t stopping Luke McCaffrey from looking to play the position at the next level.McCaffrey, the youngest brother of NFL and former Stanford star Christian and Michigan quarterback Dylan, was listed as a four-star “athlete” as a recruit.The Colorado native is the No. 1 ranked recruit in the state, per 247Sports.The site’s composite ranking system has him No. 260 overall in the country, and No. 12 among athlete recruits.McCaffrey has only been a full-time quarterback at the high school level for one season, and Martinez will be in Lincoln for at least two more seasons. He’s not eyeing a position change though.Luke McCaffrey recently confirmed that he will be playing quarterback at Nebraska.Big schools like Michigan and Ohio State recruited the youngest McCaffrey, but it was Scott Frost and his staff that sold him on being a Nebraska quarterback, while other programs waffled a bit on his position.From the Omaha World-Herald:“Nebraska has told me they’ve been pretty sold with me at quarterback,” McCaffrey said. “That’s something I like. I think they’ve been honest through the whole recruiting process so I trust them. I trust their word in saying I’m a quarterback.”[…]“I’m really excited about him playing quarterback for us here,” (Nebraska quarterbacks coach Mario) Verduzco said when McCaffrey signed this month. “I know there’s been some chatter about him playing other positions. Luke’s going to play quarterback for us and gonna be a damn good one.”McCaffrey is enrolling early at Nebraska this month to get a jump on his college career.[Omaha World-Herald]last_img
