Catalina also excelled at the Scout.com All-American Combine March 4 at Pitts UPMC Sports Complex, and he talked about his college prospects.
I like Penn State and Pitt a lot, Catalina said. Pitt, I watched them a lot growing up around here, but I really liked it when I went to Penn State [for an unofficial visit last fall]. It was nice. Right now, Im just enjoying the attention from Division I schools. To play D-I football, on national television, that would be a great thing to do.
Along with Penn State and Pitt, Catalina has received interest from Syracuse, Akron and West Virginia. None have given him a scholarship offer yet, but he hopes to get one soon as he takes more visits.
We went to the Penn State-Ohio State game, Catalina said. It was wild. What game. It was a great experience. That stadium is something else. It would be great to play in that place in front of all those fans.
Catalina ran the 40-yard dash in 4.72 seconds and covered the 20-yard shuttle run in 4.44 at the Scout Combine. He had a vertical leap of 38 inches and added a standing broad jump of nine feet. A three-cone run time was not reported.
