It’s been quite a week for the McMahon family. Three days after WWE Chairman Vince McMahon defeated Pat McAfee at WrestleMania 38, his grandson, Declan, pledged to play football in Indiana.
Declan McMahon — the son of Shane McMahon, who was reportedly released from WWE in February — will join Indiana’s 2022 recruiting class, a 247Sports group ranked 25th nationally and fifth in the Big Ten. The 6-foot, 192-pound running back/quarterback hybrid played his high school ball at Poly Prep Country Day in Brooklyn, NY
According to his Twitter account, Declan McMahon also received scholarship offers from Eastern Carolina and Fordham. He got an offer from Indiana and visited the Bloomington campus in March.
While Declan McMahon’s athletic career is just getting started, his 76-year-old grandfather has shown he still has some juice. Vince McMahon – with repeated help from Austin Theory – defeated NFL gambler-turned-podcaster McAfee via pinfall in WrestleMania 38.
But Vince McMahon didn’t have much time to celebrate. His old nemesis, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, ran into the ring to give him a stunner.
Declan McMahon isn’t ranked on 247Sports, so maybe he’s giving the Hoosiers a stun of his own by topping his recruiting pedigree.
