Anthem (Ariz.) Boulder Creek 2015 offensive lineman Nathan Eldridge is one of the better in-state football prospects and the local schools have taken notice.
"I'm familiar with both and I really had a good time at Arizona," Eldridge said. "I got the offer and it was just a neat experience. They love my game and they seem to think that I can play anywhere on the interior line."
Arizona certainly is not the only school that will offer Eldridge and he believes two more could be close.
"Arizona State and Boise State are the other schools that stick out," he said. "Arizona State has always been great. Their coaches have been up front with me from the beginning."Then considering how they've played since Coach Graham has been there, and it's not that far away, it a school I will strongly consider. I look forward to seeing the campus in July.
"With Boise State, it's a new coaching staff, but it's a place that has been good for so long that you know they will be in the mix."
These schools shouldn't expect a quick decision from Eldridge.
"Like I said, I don't have anything lined up besides ASU in July," Eldridge said. "I want to take as many visits as I need.
"I'm going to probably take my time and play this out and wait until after my season to make my decision."
