ting Lincoln over the weekend, Coronoa Centennial high school quarterback Tanner McKee received an offer from Nebraska. The Huskers join BYU, Hawaii, Colorado and Utah to throw an offer down.
“Not really,” replied McKee, when asked if he was surprised by the offer. “I've been talking to the coaches and I knew they had been watching my film. Coach Langsdorf came out to our college showcase in May and said he liked how I play.”
After taking several visits this fall, McKee said he thinks he’s done making trips for a while.
“I loved my visit to Nebraska. Definitely want to go back,” said McKee. “I will probably take an official visit next year. Coach Langsford said he is coming out to Centennial soon, so I will get to talk with him more after he comes out.
“I connected well with the coach while I was in Nebraska and love the facilities and fans.”
Nebraska is yet to start a quarterback head coach Mike Riley or Danny Langsdorf brought into the program. The offense at this point looks different than it will likely in two years.
“I feel I would fit into their offense very well,” said McKee. “They run a pro style offense with a little spread mixed in. I think my strong suits as a quarterback are my accuracy, arm strength, and decision making.”
At this point, none of the big California schools have jumped in his recruitment with an offer. Expect that to change down the road.
“Without naming them all, yes I feel like several schools that I've been in contact with are pretty close to offering right now,” said McKee.
After beating Chaminade last week 66-35, Centennial will play St. John Bosco in the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section High School Football Playoff Bracket this Friday.
According to Maxpreps, in 12 games McKee has thrown for nearly 3,300 yards and 33 touchdowns to just eight interceptions – hitting on nearly 72 percent of his throws.
