The scion of perhaps pro wrestling’s greatest dynasty is set to play college football in the fall.

Declan McMahon, son of wrestler Shane McMahon and grandson of WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, announced his engagement as the Indiana Hoosiers’ favorite walkon on Twitter. McMahon, primarily a running back who can also play quarterback, played high school football at Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn, New York. McMahon also said on Twitter that he had visited Duke and Rutgers over the past few weeks and said he had received offers from Fordham and East Carolina University.

McMahon comes from a notable athletic family. His father, Shane, has been a professional wrestler for more than 30 years, while his 76-year-old grandfather, Vince, recently gave former NFL punter Pat McAfee a match at WrestleMania 38, pinning him before to receive a stunner from “Stone Cold” Steven. Austin, who was wrestling his first WWE match in nearly two decades.

Declan McMahon celebrated his engagement on Twitter, with his proud father Shane also posting a touching tribute to his son.
