Dreslinski adds first D1 offer

The dream has started to become a reality for one the top uncommitted players from the state of Michigan in Clinton tight end Nate Dreslinski. After years of hard work and production had yet to yield a Division 1 offer, Air Force stepped forward on Thursday morning and officially offered.

"They came to visit my school this morning and they said that they were offering me a scholarship to play football at Air Force," stated an excited Dreslinski. "We scheduled an official visit for January 22-23. which will happen before I decide what to do going forward"

With Air Force pulling the trigger and many other schools still interested, Dreslinski remained uncommitted and excited to see where the process goes from here.

"I didn't commit but they definitely will be considered a lot, as it is Air Force. The name Air Force Academy in itself is just impressive. I get to play football for four years, get to do my service, and I can retire by age 42 with full pension. What isn't to like about that? Also it's just a great football ground and can't wait to get up there and see it," said Dreslinski. "A lot of schools are still showing interest, like Toledo which has as offered me as a preferred walk on. I now plan on just emailing the coaches interested in me telling them I got an offer and I hope with that, other offers will follow. I just want to have as many choices as possible."

Now that the process has picked up with an offer, Dreslinski will continue to evaluate schools and decide on his future plans.

"Right now I am getting ready to head up to Michigan Tech, I will be using one of my official visits to check them out. So I will now have three left which I will save up for any other offers. If another school around here offers, I will probably visit the school unofficially and then officially. Now if it's a school out west, I will just use an official" said Dreslinski.
