QB Bossory is one to watch

The state of Michigan already has one high-level quarterback recruit in Shane Morris of Warren DeLaSalle High School. Nate Bossory is doing his best to make people recognize that Morris is not the only BCS level signal-caller in the state this year. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Bossory is one of the players that numerous college coaches are looking forward to seeing this spring and summer on the camp and combine scene. SpartanMag.com spoke with Bossory and got some details on his recruitment.

"I am hearing from several schools, Bossory said. "Some of the schools are Oregon State, Duke, Stanford, Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, Harvard and Florida. I was hearing from Penn State (prior to coaching change)."

This past fall Bossory had an outstanding season for Manchester High School. He threw for over 2000-yards and 26 touchdowns. In his two years as a starter at Manchester, Bossory has amassed over 4000-yards passing and thrown for over 50 touchdowns. Those numbers make him one of the most productive quarterbacks in Michigan over the last two seasons.

Back in December Bossory attended the Maximum Exposure Combine at the Pontiac Silverdome. Bossory impressed people in attendance. Rivals.com Midwest Recruiting Analyst Josh Helmholdt had the following to say about Bossory's performance.

"Bossory has hit the offseason with a vengeance and is already working on those areas of his game he feels did not stack up as a junior. On Saturday he unveiled a shorter and quicker release, and very solid footwork. He has the tools to be a coveted quarterback prospect in the 2013 class."

Michigan State has signed two quality quarterbacks the last two seasons in Tyler O'Conner on Connor Cook, but they still only have 3 signal-callers on scholarship. For that reason, we fully expect they will look at add a quality quarterback to the class of 2012. Bossory has a lot of positive feelings about Michigan State University and the football program.

"I really like Michigan State," Bossory said. "I love the area. The coaches there are great. I worked with Coach (Dave) Warner this summer. I also think that Coach (Mark) Dantonio is one of the best in the country. My dad played at State and my sister is on the rowing team there now too."

With strong connection to Michigan State, you can be sure the Spartan staff will be keeping a close eye on Bossory's progress in the coming months. The Spartans often use their camp season as the time to evaluate and push for a quarterback commitment. We look for that to once again be the case this summer. Bossory will be looking forward to proving he has what it takes to be a Big Ten quarterback.
