It started with Missouri and has gone almost as far as you can get with an offer from defending National Co-Champions LSU. Quarterback Dom Natale of Princeton (N.J.) The Hun School made a weekend visit to LSU for a one-day camp and last Tuesday night he found out that his written offer was in the mail.
"LSU was really nice, and I really loved the facilities. When I left the coaches told me to call them on Tuesday and when I did they told me that they were offering and that they were sending the letter and I should have it this week."
An offer from LSU shows just how good Natale really is. Now with more than 15 offers in hand, Natale is known throughout the country. Schools from across the country including Stanford, Mississippi State, Missouri, Louisville, Michigan State, Maryland, Rutgers and others have all offered.
So why such an interest in the 6-foot-2, 190-pound pro-style quarterback?
"All the schools that have offered really like my foot work and my release. I was told by a few of the schools that they thought I had great field presence as well."
So does Natale have a favorite now that LSU is in the mix?
"I'm still open, but LSU is very tempting. I just need to sit down with my family and head coach and discuss it all."
