GLENBARD WEST HEAD COACH CHAD HETLET
"Nathan is one of the top players in Illinois. There were times when Nathan would literally take over a game and just dominate for us, both as a receiver and pass rusher.
"Nathan is a great athlete and plays a physical game. He's going to be a very loyal teammate, a hard-working young man that will go above and beyond what is asked of him.
"Nathan definitely has the potential to become an impact player at Vanderbilt. I'm looking forward to watching his development."
