National Signing day is less than a month away but one of Central Nebraska's dynamic duo's have already made their college choices. Kearney Catholic Stars Matt Masker and Brett Kaiser will be sporting different colors come the fall.

Masker landed a walk–on offer from Scott Frost after attending the Homegrown Nebraska event.

In his senior year, Masker threw for 2,506 yards totaling 26 touchdown passes.

He also owns the state record for most touchdown passes in a single season. Throwing 36 his junior year.

One of his favorite targets, Kaiser on the other hand is staying close to home.

Committing to play for the University of Nebraska at Kearney, number six hopes to help grow the Lopers passing game, which finished second to last a season ago in MIAA standings.

Kaiser made 51 receptions in 2017, totaling 1,118 yards and scored 15 touchdowns.

"Ever since I went to my first Husker game when I was six years old, I remember that day like it was yesterday," Masker told NTV. "Just growing up in this great state it's always been a dream of mine to play for Nebraska and when coach Frost came he gave me that opportunity and we knew that it was the right choice."

"It would be cool to go to a place that's already established and already got national titles and stuff, but for me I thought it was an even better opportunity to go somewhere that isn't quite as established and needs help, and somewhere that I can help them a lot and make me a better player," said Kaiser. "You know that just really attracted me."

Kaiser and Masker both plan to keep their same positions moving up to the collegiate level.

Together they led Kearney Catholic to a 7–3 record last season, combining for 45 touchdowns.
