Lake Oswego, Ore., is still in the playoffs so Cole Naone is focused on his season but once things are finished the 6-foot-3, 205-pound outside linebacker plans to send out his highlight tape and hopes schools take notice.
Naone, a two-star prospect by Rivals.com, already has an Air Force offer and Oregon State, Oregon, Hawaii, Colorado, Portland State and Eastern Washington have been showing interest. He's thinking after those programs see his senior season film that some might offer.
"Everyone has been waiting for film and I haven't been too good in getting game copies and making highlights," Naone said.
"I have a highlight made but we're in the playoffs so I figured I'd just wait until the end of the playoffs to finish it off and then I'll send it off when the season is done. I want to get as many options as I can."
Oregon State would be his dream offer since his father, Charlie, played for the Beavers and the family has been going to games for as long as Naone can remember. If Oregon State offered it might be tough for the Lake Oswego standout to turn it down.
"My dad played at Oregon State and I've been going to Beaver games for as long as I can remember," Naone said.
"Oregon State has always been my dream school. That would definitely be a best-case scenario but I wouldn't be opposed to a lot of other places."
Air Force is one of those options. Naone said the Falcons have long been involved in his recruitment and even though he wants to consider all programs before making a commitment that Air Force has been around the longest and so it is under serious consideration.
"I'm not leaving anything out," Naone said.
"They were the first team to offer. They offered me right after my junior season so I had that offer for a long time. I'm definitely taking it seriously but I'm definitely keeping my options open to the end."
