Young Nick has elected to pursue the same hobby as his Hall-of-Fame dad, and on Tuesday committed to play quarterback at the University of Washington.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Montana is rated as the No. 13 QB in the nation by Scout.com and had offers from Notre Dame, his father's alma mater, as well as Louisiana State, Ohio State, Stanford, Alabama and Georgia.
Montana said he had originally planned to take much of the summer to make his decision but that his visit to UW last weekend "made everything a lot easier. It cleared everything up."
The Huskies finished 2008 with a record of 0-12, but are hoping new coach Steve Sarkisian can turn the program around.
