Friday Flakes: If Casey Thompson Chooses Nebraska - Will He Do ‘Horns Down’?

New, comments

He must right? It is should be a requirement at this point or am I wrong?

At this point Casey Thompson, a Texas Quarterback transfer, has not chosen Nebraska as his transfer destination.

It is reported that he has a Top 5 which includes Nebraska, Auburn, Oklahoma, Indiana and Missouri.

Just this week Auburn, Oklahoma and Indiana have all added transfer quarterbacks and it’s reported that Missouri is not currently recruiting him. So that leaves Nebraska as the remaining school of choice it seems.

Casey Thompson was extremely successful, stat wise, against Big 12 competition. With that said, what I am wondering is if he would do a ‘Horns Down’ gesture after his announcement just to endear him to Nebraska fans.

It would be awesome.
