Fellner talks about Husky offer

One of the rising safety prospects heading into the final week of football camps is Clovis West(Fresno) S Nathan Fellner. The hard-nosed and versatile defender just received his third offer as the Washington Huskies threw their hat in the ring for his services. Read on to get his thoughts on all things recruiting and football...

"I just got offered by Washington today," a busy Fellner told Dawgman.com. "It just came in the mail and it was pretty cool to get it finally in writing."

Fellner, who sports a solid 3.6 GPA, had just finished a study session for Advanced Math and was on his way to dinner and then the Fresno State camp this evening, so he's been keeping busy, but he took the time to talk about the Washington offer.

"Washington is a good school and I know I could get a great education there," Fellner, who also sports offers from Stanford and San Diego State, said. "Coach (J.D.) Williams told me when he watched my highlights, I reminded him of Matt Giordano who played safety for him at Cal. He's playing for the Colts right now, so that was really cool to hear.

"I've spoken to coach (Tyrone) Willingham three times and he is really easy to talk to. (Williams and Willingham) said they really want to get me up there for an official visit and I plan on doing that and I might go up there in the summer, it just sort of depends on my schedule and stuff, but I'm definitely planning on taking an official up there."

In addition to Fellner's offers, he's also seeing attention from Oregon, California and Arizona State.

"Everyone is looking at me as a DB," Fellner said. "Washington said I could play either safety spot. It just depends on where they need me and where I fit best."

As a junior for Clovis West, Fellner was a standout on both sides of the ball, nabbing 19 receptions for 292 yards and two touchdowns, while carrying the ball 76 times for 454 yards and three touchdowns and posting 26 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles as a safety.

So with those three offers under his belt, is Fellner under any pressure to commit somewhere?

"I'm not really set on a timeline to commit anywhere," Fellner noted. "If I feel a situation is right, then I might just commit before my season so I can concentrate on football, but I might just wait and play my season, because I plan to have a big season, so that I can see what else is out there and take some visits.

"Honestly, it's just a matter of how I feel about things and that's when I'll know when I will be ready to make a decision."

We'll continue to track Fellner's progress over the next few months and update things as they happen.
