Nate Craig, Pasco WR (6-3, 200)


The latest: Rutgers became the seventh college to offer the sophomore-to-be, Craig announced Friday morning on Facebook. The Scarlet Knights regularly recruit the North Suncoast and landed Pasco star Janarion Grant in February. Later in the day, Craig received an offer from Vanderbilt - his third SEC offer.


Offers: Texas Tech, UMass, Ohio State, Mississippi State, Clemson, Tennessee, Rutgers, Vanderbilt


Last season: Craig had a standout freshman season at receiver and defensive back. He scored nine touchdowns (seven receiving) while averaging 17 yards per catch during Pasco’s run to the Class 5A elite eight. He also snared four interceptions.


They say: Most recruiting sites don’t rank or give stars for freshmen, but Craig is already being whispered as a potential five-star recruit and the state’s top prospect in 2016.


We say: Craig has the bloodlines – his older brother, Josh Johnson, was picked up by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent – size and athleticism to be an elite recruit. Don’t be surprised if he lands another dozen (or two) offers during the spring evaluation period. You can check out a highlight reel we made below.
