Rebs bringing in QB from Oklahoma
The 6' 4 1/2", 205 pounder took Sequoyah to a 9-1 regular season record but found a little trouble in the playoffs.
"We got beat in the 2nd round in double overtime by a blocked extra point," added Nathan Stanley. "We couldn't believe it."
Nathan tore is up his senior season as he passed for over 2, 500 yards and 38 TD's and rushed for another 500 plus and 6 TD's.
"I just got named 1st Team All-State for all classifications. That was pretty cool."
What makes Stanley so effective?
"I feel I am a good leader, and I make good decisions and I am pretty accurate," stated the 4 year starter for Sequoyah.
Where does Scout.com's #30 nationally ranked QB stand with his recruitment?
"I am in contact with Arkansas, Kansas State, and Oregon State. Ole Miss and Nebraska have really picked it up recently too."
Stanley set up his first official visit in January.
"I am going to Kansas State on January 18th, and I am suppose to get one set up with Nebraska, Ole Miss, and Oregon State, but I do not know if I will be able to fit all of them in or not."
When did the relationship start between Nathan and Ole Miss?
"About a week ago, to be truthful. Coach Nutt called and left a message with my coach saying he wanted me to come down there and take a visit. He has called a few times since then, and we have been talking. He wanted to know how I had been doing and about my season. But mainly, we are just getting my visit lined up. I am going down there for sure in January but we do not have a specific date yet."
What interests Nathan about the Rebels?
"I have been going to Arkansas' camps since I was in 9th grade. I have done well at them. I have a close relationship with Coach Nutt, and when he went to Ole Miss, that turned me on to them. I am ready to get down there so I can see what it is all about. Coach Nutt said they have everything that is needed to win big down there."
Kansas State has built close ties with the signal caller.
"They are probably one of my top choices. The have been on me the hardest out of any school. They were the first school to offer me. I am real close to Kansas State. They are one of my top choices."
"I talked about a visit with them when they came by the school, but that was before Coach Patrino came in, so I am not sure about them anymore."
What about Oregon State?
"They have been to a few of my games, so they know all about my game. They want me to take a visit out there and see what it is all about. I like the offense they run, and they have a real good situation for me at QB. I feel like they are doing a good job up there."
"I do not know a whole lot about Nebraska. They came on me pretty late. They called my coach and wanted some film. We sent it, and then they came down to the school last week to try and set up an official visit. I am going to play it by ear and see how it goes."
Surprisingly, Stanley is only holding one scholarship offer out of his list of schools.
"Kansas State, N' Western, and Oklahoma State are the only ones that have put it in writing. I guess the rest of them will discuss it while I am on my visit. I am not too worried about it."
