Three-star defensive back/running back Nathan Fellner (6-0, 195, 4.57) from Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West recently picked up his third offer from a Pac 10 school making his scholie total to four. Stanford was the school that started the ball rolling in early spring and it is been solid ever since.
Washington State is Fellner's fourth offer as the Cougars join Stanford, Washington and San Diego State.
Fellner talks about his latest offer.
"I know Washington State is turning their program around and they have great fans," Fellner said. "They have also been to the Rose Bowl a couple of times in recent years."
"Washington State head coach Paul Wulff said I could come in and get early time," Fellner said. "He (Wulff) also said that the whole town supports the football players and that they have a loud stadium."
Fellner recaps his thoughts on his other offers.
"Stanford has the best combination of academics and athletics," Fellner said. "Washington has great tradition and is a great place to play. I like the city of San Diego and the atmosphere of the campus."
At this point, Fellner is still keeping his options open.
Though Fellner is being recruited for his talents as a safety, he does have the versatility to play other positions. He started his junior season as the starting H-back, but was moved to running back when the starting running back was hurt.

On the defensive side of the ball, Fellner racked up 26 tackles, two interceptions and a two forced fumbles.
