Nate has already taken 2 of his 5 official visits.

"I went to Michigan State when they played Michigan, and I went to LSU when they played Florida," Nate said.

He will also take official visits to North Carolina State on 12/7, and Oklahoma on 12/14.  He also plans to visit Florida.

"I might not go to Florida on an official visit.  I'm trying to save my last visit for either Auburn or Kentucky."

Until fairly recently, Penn State was one of the schools in which Nate was interested.

"I told them I was interested, but they stopped calling.  It's been a long time.  I didn't hear anymore from the coaches, so I figured they weren't interested.  They were recruiting me hard, but they just stopped, so I went on to the next one."

According to Nate, all of the schools mentioned have offered him a scholarship.

"A lot of schools have offered me.  I just can't take official visits to all of them.  That doesn't mean that I'm not interested in them though.  Miami offered me, but I don't have to take an official visit there.  I can take an unofficial visit there because they're so close."

Nate maintains that he does not have a favorite team.  He did, however, like his visit to Michigan State a little more than his visit to LSU.

"Both schools are good schools, but I feel I could do better things at Michigan State than I could do at LSU."

Nate has taken the SAT and ACT, but has not yet achieved a qualifying score.
