The Nebraska recruiting is in full swing, as several young players have already made commitments to play for the Cornhuskers. Among them are linebacker Nick Henrich and quarterback Luke McCaffrey. The latter of these players has the benefit of being able to learn from an experienced father as his head coach. He also happens to have a brother currently playing in the NFL right now. McCaffrey recently spoke about his experiences including playing a number of different positions in high school.

McCaffrey's played many positions

When he arrives as a member of the Nebraska football team, Luke McCaffrey will be stepping into the quarterback position.

He could also join Javin Wright, who the school is trying to sign. However, he's gained a lot of valuable experience, on the field, throughout his high school days. In fact, he's played just about every football position you can imagine on offense, minus the linebacker spots.

McCaffrey told the Lincoln Journal Star that he "did a little bit of everything" in his sophomore season. That included returning punts and kicks, receiving, running the ball, as well as some time playing safety and cornerback. Oh yeah, he also handled the quarterback duties too.

He said this year, the quarterback spot has been his main position, which is a good thing, as he readies himself for life as a member of the Huskers football team.

Luke committed to UN back in early June and seems ready to don the big red uniform on the field.

McCaffrey's experienced football family

If Luke McCaffrey's last name sounds familiar, it's because he's related to two NFL stars. One is former NFL star Ed McCaffrey, who played for the Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers. The elder McCaffrey has three Super Bowl rings and 13 seasons of experience in the professional league.

He's also Luke's head coach right now, helping to prepare his son for the college grind.

Luke indicated that having his dad as a head football coach has been extremely helpful. He also pointed out that the entire football coaching staff for his team has about "16 Super Bowl rings" between them. He mentioned, "it's awesome to be able to soak in every little experience you can from these coaches."

When asked about his favorite sports game he ever attended, Luke brought up a trip to the Super Bowl back in 2016, when the Denver Broncos stomped the Carolina Panthers.

However, attending the Rose Bowl that same year was his top choice. That's because his brother, Christian McCaffrey, was playing for Stanford in his sophomore season. Christian now suits up for the NFL's Carolina Panthers, who are making a push towards the NFL playoffs.

With family like that and the skills he possesses, Nebraska recruit, Luke McCaffrey, will certainly be one to watch. Fans of Nebraska Cornhuskers football, which could be dangerous in the second half, are definitely excited to see what the future brings when he finally steps on the field along with their other highly-touted recruits.
