Bubba Starling officially, FINALLY, called to the majors with the Kansas City Royals…where does he rank in ‘what if’ prospects for Nebraska football?

-Starling was listed as the No. 6 dual-threat QB in the 2011 class, before getting selected 5th overall by the Royals in the MLB Draft, and skipping his college education to do so

-You have to be happy for Bubba, at least, for sticking it out—he was viewed as a bust for many years before finally getting things figured out and become a factor…a late bloomer
