Quarterback Nate Bossory threw for 2,100 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior for Manchester (High), but the 6-3, 220-pound signal caller will be playing his senior season for Chelsea High in southeast Michigan.
"I'm actually really excited and thing it is going to be a really good move," Bossory said. "I'll be there in the second full week of March - the start of the third trimester.
"My dad has known [Chelsea] coach Brad Bush for a long time. He's a great coach and a great guy. He puts people in the next level, and he prepares people really well for the next level. [The offense] is going to be what I run in college - a lot of pro-style, under center stuff."
Bossory already knows several of the players he will be joining next fall on Chelsea's team. One of those is running back Berkley Edwards, who was in East Lansing with Bossory on Saturday. The two prospects were attending Michigan State's junior day, and Bossory came away feeling encouraged by the Spartan's interest.
"I talked to Coach [Terry] Samuel and Coach [Dave] Warner," Bossory said. "They looked at my highlight film and said it was good to get me there. I'm going to hear from Coach Warner, maybe this week, but he said I looked good and had a good build. He said the move to Chelsea is a really good move."
Now that he knows he has the attention of Michigan State coaches, Bossory plans to stay in contact and make return visits to East Lansing in hopes have earning a scholarship offer.
"I plan on going to their spring practice and sit in on some meetings," Bossory said. "I'm sure it is going to come down to the summer. They talked about how they are slow on the offers. They want to get to know who they are recruiting and make sure it is the right fit."
Besides Michigan State, Bossory has also been hearing from the likes of Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Purdue, Iowa, Rutgers, Oregon State, Stanford and Duke. He has now visited Michigan State and Western Michigan for junior days, and is considering other trips this spring and summer.
"I could have gone to Purdue's junior day on Saturday, but I decided to go to Michigan State's," Bossory said. "Eastern's is coming up and Rutgers' [coach] said he would let me know when they are having one. Stanford's is in the summer."
