For Bubba Starling, everything starts with family. Starling is being called Nebraska's biggest multi-sport recruit in years and it's his desire to be close to his family that could make a dream reality in Husker Nation.

"My family supports me and their going to help me through this and stuff, and we'll have to figure out what's going to happen," Starling said.

Starling says he plans to be a Husker next fall, but less than one month removed from the MLB Draft, he's still torn.

"It's definitely crossed my mind, playing baseball and being next superstar outfielder, whatever, or definitely being the next Eric Crouch, I've weighed both of those and we'll just have to see," he said.

Bubba already considers the University of Nebraska his new family and that's the only reason he's considering turning down a multi-million dollar contract.
