Update on QB Nate Longshore

After a big summer, the big, strong-armed quarterback from Canyon Country, <b>Nate Longshore</b>, now has 13 scholarship offers, and all but two of his favorite schools have offered...

The summer was a good one for Canyon Country (Calif.) Canyon High quarterback Nate Longshore (6-4, 225).

The strong-armed righty participated in the Elite 11 Camp in Orange County and led Canyon to a 43-2-1 record in passing league games.

"I have a great time during passing league, dropping back, passing every play. It's perfect. We could have done better in the Student Sports tournament. We lost to Mater Dei but we beat a pretty good Vista team," said Longshore.

Couple that with the experience at the Elite 11 Camp, and it was as eventful a summer he has had. "The camp was a lot of fun. It was a good experience, and we had some good workouts, learned how to read defenses better. I've never been up close really with professional players, and Troy Aikman was there, and he's coming out and giving me tips, and talking with us. It was pretty good," said Longshore.

On the recruiting front, Longshore has a solid seven schools on his list. "My top schools are California, UCLA, USC, Oregon State, BYU, San Diego State and Arizona," said Longshore. "All but UCLA and USC have offered."

In all, Longshore has 13 offers.

One of the biggest questions with Longshore and his recruiting is his decision to take his mission after his first year. But his timeline may not be as firm as before. "I am still planning on taking my mission, unless the team needs me, and I can wait. It's going to be what's convenient for the school, and what the circumstance allows, but I don't know exactly when I will take it," said Longshore.

While the offers are coming for him, he is also doing some recruiting for his older brother Nick, a lineman at College of the Canyons. "He played at CSUN, then went on his mission, then they dropped their program, so he came back and is playing at COC. Alabama really likes him. He is an offensive tackle and is going to play D-1," said Longshore.

Last weekend, Longshore attended the USC-BYU game, and this weekend plans to go to the UCLA-Illinois game with teammate, linbacker Andrew Schantz. "I'm excited to go to the UCLA game this weekend, and check them out. I saw some of their game. They should put the Ball brothers on the offensive line. Those guys are amazing," said Longshore.
