It has been quite some time since the city of Yuma has produced a prep athlete that received major college scholarship offers but Yuma Catholic (Az.) TE/DE Matt Pistone made up for the drought, hauling in 15 division offers to date.
San Diego State, Wyoming, Northwestern, Boise State, New Mexico State, Colorado, Colorado State, Washington, UTEP, Vanderbilt, NAU, Oregon State, South Dakota State and Austin Peay all have offered Pistone and he has had a busy summer trying to narrow down his list.
Pistone has unofficially visited Northern Arizona, Arizona State, San Diego State, Oregon State and Boise State and he says, "The highlight of my summer has been the last two days when I visited Oregon State and Boise State."
And Pistone says that he considers those two programs his top two. "I am looking to commit in the next couple of days," he says. "I wish I would have been able to visit Northwestern and Vanderbilt but my top two schools are solid."
On the Beavers, "OSU was the first FBS school to offer and they haven't stopped recruiting me since then. They have sets with three tight ends in the game, which increases the opportunity to play early."
"Boise made me feel right at home during the visit. Just like Oregon State, they haven't stopped recruiting me."
Helping his team win the D5 state title as a junior, Pistone (6-5 240) was an absolute monster. As a TE he caught 27 passes for 374 yards and 8 TDs. On defense he made 84 tackles and 14.5 sacks.
