Princeton (N.J.) The Hun School quarterback Dom Natale recently received some good news despite just missing the cut for the Elite 11. He has two new offers to ponder.
"Stanford offered me last week and Michigan State just offered as well," said the 6-foot-2, 188-pounder. "I'm interested in both schools. Stanford has great academics and it's in a nice location and Michigan State is a top school with a good quarterback situation for me. I like the offense they run and my ex-teammate and friend, Craig McGovern, is there."
Natale and McGovern hooked up on 34 passes for 855 yards and eight scores last season at The Hun School.
"It's a step in the door with MSU," said Natale. "Knowing Craig and having the connection we have on and off the football field is an advantage. Michigan State also told me I'm their top target now, which is nice to hear."
Natale also has offers from, and lists amongst his leaders, Louisville, Maryland, Mississippi State, Missouri, Rutgers and Syracuse.
"I've already been to Rutgers a bunch of times, I was at Syracuse and Maryland as well already this srping and I've seen Michigan State and Mississippi State," he said. "I'm going to Missouri this weekend with my parents and then off to LSU later this month for camp. I'd like to get out to Stanford in August if I can."
Does Natale have a leader?
"No, not at all actually," he said. "I need to start figuring that out because I don't want to wait forever to make a decision. I'd like to take my first official visit to the school I like the best and see if it's a fit. If it is, I'll commit on that trip."
As a junior, Natale threw for 2,100 yards and 22 touchdowns against only seven interceptions. He was named the Quarterback MVP at the Elite College Combine in May and was a standout at the NIKE Camp at State College, Pa. as well.
