Millard South senior Gage Stenger can keep a secret.
October 1, Nebraska offered Stenger a scholarship as a hybrid safety/linebacker, the night before he unofficially visited Kansas State. The school he had been committed to since June, 26.
“Nebraska was always my dream school,” Stenger said of his commitment to NU. “Getting the opportunity to play there is something I’ve alway wanted and you can feel it from the coaching staff and how they are committed to everything, that convinced me the program is headed in the right direction.”
Stenger unofficially visited Nebraska on Thursday, something very few outside his family and the NU staff new was happening. He didn’t tell many people, outside of Husker coach Scott Frost on Tuesday, of his intention to flip from K-State to NU until Wednesday morning when he announced his intentions.
“I just had to keep it between me and my family.”

Millard South has started the season 7-0 thanks in large part to Stenger and his play at quarterback. Through seven games he has thrown for 1,095 yards, 11 touchdowns and no interceptions. On the ground he has 507 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns.
Stenger is the third in-state commit in the 2022 class, joining linebackers Jake Appelget (Lincoln Southeast) and Ernest Hausmann (Columbus).
