Luke McCaffrey Finalizes His Transfer
McCaffrey made an official announcement on his Twitter profile that he’ll be playing in the ACC for the Lousiville Cardinals. He is now going to compete for the starting quarterback position. Luke McCaffrey mentioned that he’s excited to continue both his athletic and academic career at the University of Louisville.
Back at Nebraska, McCaffrey was competing against Adrian Martinez for the 2020 quarterback position. He got a lot of playing time and even 7 game appearances. He totaled 830 yards of offense including 4 touchdowns that came through the air and on the ground.
However, despite his successes, Scott Frost, the head coach at Nebraska, went with Adrian Martinez for the starting quarterback and that’s likely who will start most of the 2021 season. McCaffrey is now going to Louisville where he’ll try his luck to secure the starting position.
A Big Shock in College Football
When the news broke about McCaffrey’s transfer to Louisville, many Cardinals fans seemed to be excited. The younger brother of NFL superstar, Christian McCaffrey, adds depth to the Cardinals’ roster, at the very least.
The initial announcement from Luke McCaffrey that he was transferring came as a big shock to most of the Nebraska football program. The head coach, Frost, was confident in the team and their future, but that was with McCaffrey on the team.
McCaffrey is considered to be a dual-threat as a quarterback since he’s a dangerous runner, more so than he is a passer. Given that, he’s still considered a strong passer, but he’s going to have to work on cutting down his turnover.
