The Nebraska football team is going to be hosting the most prolific wide receiver in the history of Arizona high school football this weekend. If that resume line doesn't get you excited, how about the fact that the player's father was just announced as someone who will be inducted into the NFL hall of fame? The Huskers have been looking at this receiver as someone who could walk on, or grey shirt after he got very few offers from division one schools and declined to sign with any school during National Signing Day last week.

'I was bewildered'

Kade Warner is getting a long look from the Nebraska football team, but even the Huskers aren't willing to offer him a full ride scholarship just yet.

This is despite the fact that the son of Kurt Warner amassed 83 catches in his senior year at Desert Mountain High School. That followed a season where he caught 96 passes. With those kinds of numbers, it's a bit shocking that there wasn't any kind of division one offers coming into the Warner family home. Kade clearly was more than a bit surprised as to why so many schools were willing to let him walk on, but not come in with his schooling paid for. The receiver recently talked to the Omaha World-Herald and said he was "bewildered" by the situation.

Between positions

It appears that one of the reasons the Nebraska football team, as well as schools like UCLA, Arizona State, and Iowa are all interested but not "too" interested is because it's not clear what position he would play.

The younger Warner is described as someone with good hands who is hard to bring down, but he's likely more of an H-Back than a college level wide receiver. The Huskers brought in another player in that mold already in Ben Miles. Still, a player who has the Arizona state record for career receptions with 241 is a player the Cornhuskers cannot overlook.

Add in his 35 career touchdowns, and you have to wonder if everyone is simply missing out on this prospect. Mike Riley and company will be able to get a closer look at Kade Warner when he hits Lincoln for an official visit this weekend.
