The past two weeks have been very busy for one of the top junior prospects in Pennsylvania. The offers have been rolling in and he still finds time to help lead his perennial powerhouse State College basketball team to victories. Scout.com caught up Nathan Stupar to get the latest from this busy athlete


Ironically, one of this years top recruits became a household name by his outstanding play against the top prospect in the state last year LeSean McCoy.

Bishop McDevitt and McCoy came out victorious, but a star was born on that night in Nathan Stupar. Stupar had an amazing performance during a game that was broadcast on statewide television.

Talking to the humble Stupar you would never know he is any different then any other teenager who plays high school sports. Watch him on film or in person and the difference is eye popping.

When we first spoke to Stupar back in September he held one offer, that being from Virginia where is brother Jonathan is a red shirt sophomore. Business has begun to pick up for the 6-foot-2, 220 pound, junior from State College, Pa.

"I picked up an offer from Penn State about two weeks ago and then next day West Virginia offered," Stupar said. "Then a week ago Rutgers offered me and tonight I was offered by Maryland."

Penn State- "The Penn State offer felt really good. I was hoping they wouldn't pass me up. I always dreamed of playing at beaver Stadium. My mom, dad, and uncles went to Penn State. You could say my parents were pretty happy with that offer."

Maryland- It is a great school. I have cousins who live down there. it is really a beautiful campus."

West Virginia- "My uncle Jeff Hostetler went there. I have been there a few times. They had a great season this year."

Rutgers- "I haven't been there, but I hear its a nice school. I met one of their coaches at my school."

Stupar has been receiving interest from a virtual who's who of college football including Miami, Florida State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Duke, Illinois, Kansas State, UCLA, Ohio State, and Northwestern. After basketball season the talented linebacker/defensive end plans on making his rounds to check out a few college campuses.

"I was supposed to go to Penn State this weekend, but I can't because of basketball," he said. "I'm going to try and get to Notre Dame and a few others soon."
