Tulane University officials are tickled to have their 21st verbal commitment for the 2013 season from a football student athlete -- quarterback Nick Montana.

If the name sounds familiar, it should.  He's Hall of Famer Joe Montana's son.

Nick Montana is a 6-foot-3, 215 pound junior who began his career at the University of Washington.  He comes over from Mt. San Antonio College in California, where he threw for 22 touchdowns and passed more than 2,600 yards this past season.
