Combine that with the Cowboys' offensive system — “they run all pro concepts, just out of the shotgun,” Luke said — and Luke wanted to commit on the spot when he was offered two weeks ago.
Jack told his son to take some time to think about it. But when Luke, Jack and Luke's high school coach, Brent Vieselmeyer, met a few days later to weigh the pros and cons of all of Luke's offers (OSU, Colorado State and Oregon State), Luke had already made up his mind.
“I was like ‘I don't even know why we're really doing this, because I know where I want to go,'” Luke said.
A big part of that eagerness to commit — and confidence in his decision — is because Luke knows exactly what's in store with Todd as his quarterbacks coach.
And he expects to thrive under that coaching style.
“I've always been coached hard,” Luke said. “I like it that way, and that's what I'm looking forward to. My dad has just told me that that's what it's going to be like, and I need to get ready. I'm pumped.”
