While most of the excitement surrounding the Nebraska football team's incoming class has to do with big-name stars who might be suiting up at wide receiver next year, there is one under the radar receiver who could make waves as well. This receiver, the son of former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner has said he won't be signing anywhere on Wednesday. Its been reported that he won't be signing with anyone until he gets a visit to Lincoln under his belt.

Another NFL dynasty in the making

The Nebraska Football team already has one former NFLer in its 2017 recruiting class. Keyshawn Johnson Jr. has already signed his paperwork and is on campus.

Now Kade Warner, a wide receiver out of Arizona is taking a look at the Huskers. Kade is the son of Kurt Warner, the quarterback who played his college ball at Northern Iowa, bagged groceries for a while, and then led the St. Louis Rams to an NFL dynasty and a Super Bowl win.

Like Kurt, Kade is definitely under the radar, and it appears even the Cornhuskers aren't as high as he would like. The Nebraska football team is offering the younger Warner a preferred walk-on spot.

Post-signing day

It appears that while there are some schools that are fine with offering Kade Warner a scholarship, they aren't at the FBS level. Schools like Nebraska and Arizona have both told him they'd like to bring him in as a preferred grey shirt (meaning he could be getting a scholarship before long) and the younger Warner is at least receptive to signing with the Huskers once he gets to town.

While Warner is only a two-star recruit at the moment, he put up huge numbers in his senior year. The son of the NFL star logged 83 catches for 1,063 yards and 14 touchdowns. Throughout the course of his career, the receiver logged 241 receptions for 2,892 yards and 35 touchdowns. Those numbers are certainly impressive enough that schools could find a way to use him if they can get him on campus.

Nebraska football could end up finding itself a diamond in the rough, just days after it hopes to bring in a Top 25 class.
