While the Mannings get most of the press, there may not be a better football family than the Matthews clan. Brothers Bruce and Clay Matthews were both NFL stars in the 1980s and 90s, and between the two of them, four of their sons have played in the NFL, including Green Bay Packers all-pro linebacker Clay Matthews III, and Atlanta Falcons 2014 first round pick Jake Matthews.
Luke Matthews, a 2018 four-star offensive tackle recruit, may well be following his brothers Jake, former Tennessee Titans center Kevin, and current Texas A&M center Mike, in playing for the Aggies at the next level. Matthews told 247Sports that he was offered today, and his brothers think he may wind up being the best player in the family.

"A&M gave me an offer today," he said on Tuesday afternoon.
The 6-foot-4, 310-pound rising sophomore is the younger brother of former A&M linemen Kevin Matthews and Jake Matthews and current Aggie center Mike Matthews. His father is NFL Hall-of-Fame offensive tackle Bruce Matthews.
Luke's older brothers have described him as possibly being the best of the bunch when all is said and done, something that would be very impressive as Jake was a first-round draft pick and Kevin spent some time in the NFL as well. Mike is A&M's starting center and should get a shot in the league after this year as well.
While Matthews has a ways to go before National Signing Day 2018, and in recruiting anything can happen, it should be a pretty decent bet that he'll be the fourth brother to strap on the pads for Texas A&M.
