Last month Nathan Enderle, a 6-5, 210 pound strong-armed quarterback prospect out North Platte High School (Nebraska), committed to Nick Holt and the Vandal program the weekend of the Louisiana Tech game at the Dome. Generally regarded as one of the Top 10 prospects in the state of Nebraska this year, Nathan was recently named to the 2005 Nebraska Super State Team (2nd Team selection) despite his team struggling throughout the 2005 season (As a junior, Enderle, led the state of Nebraska in passing with 2,020 yards and 19 touchdowns). At the Nebraska Elite QB Camp this past summer, Enderle dominated the arm strength tests by throwing the ball farther than any player had ever thrown it in the camp's history (70 yards). – Nathan, we understand you committed to Idaho.

Nathan – Correct. Yes. – Can you tell us why you made that choice?

Nathan – The coaching staff. I like them a lot. I'm really excited about going to play for them. You know, just some of the situations I had going up there were good. - Did you take a trip over to Idaho?

Nathan - Yeah, I drove up during summer for a camp and I did my official visit up there right after. – What other schools were recruiting you?

Nathan – Mainly schools in the big twelve. You know like Kansas and Kansas State… I talked to Iowa, Iowa StateToledo talked to me a little bit. Princeton, Dartmouth both called me. Really, just a wide variety of schools talked to me. – Given your location, what made you attend a football camp in Idaho?

Nathan – Actually, I went up there because they wanted to see me in person. They had seen my film for a long time, and they wanted me to get up there. The offensive coordinator, Coach Kazcor, knew my name from when he recruited my brother at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. – How was your trip to the University of Idaho?

Nathan – It was real nice. I mean its real pretty country up there. It's a very different culture. They're really friendly and I like that. It was all around a good deal to go up there. – Who was your host?

Nathan – My host was a grey shirt linebacker by the name of Adam. He just introduced me to a lot of the guys. It was a good time. – Will you be taking trips to other schools?

Nathan - No. – Are you expecting to redshirt or play immediately?

Nathan – I'm not sure what will happen. I know right now they have a JUCO transfer that will be a senior next year and he's been learning the offense for a while so he's pretty good to go. I'm gonna battle it out and see how it comes out. The quarterbacks that are there right now have to battle it out. I imagine that it'll be the case when I get there and it will work itself out. – What do you consider your strengths?

Nathan – I have a strong arm, my intelligence and hopefully I can get a good grasp of the system. I learn pretty fast so I'm hoping to contribute right away.
