Spokane (Wash.) Mead 2013 tight end Danny Mattingly has started to hear from some college programs…
2013 Spokane ATH Talks Recruiting
"My coach has spoken to Boise State a couple times," he said. "I heard they were asking him about my grades, character, work ethic, and that type of stuff," he added.
"I just like everything about them," he said in regards to Boise State. "They're just a school that really interests me and I've heard nothing but good things about them."
"I'd love to go down for their (BSU) Junior Day," he stated. "Idaho invited me to theirs, so I'm hoping to get a few more invites."
The talented ATH says he has received a lot of mail from schools like Nebraska, Washington, Idaho, and others.
"Nebraska has sent me a lot of letters. I probably get one about every week from them," he said. "Washington has sent me a few and Idaho has too. Personally, I'm hoping to hear from ASU since I've always liked them."
"I have a lot of family down around ASU," said Mattingly. "My grandma practically lives right on the campus down there. It would be great to hear from them."
Mattingly says the academic side will play a role in his decision.
"I guess one of the main things is just what the school has to offer," he said. "I think engineering would be really cool since I've taken a few classes already for that. I'd like to go to the best school possible. I think I'd just have to take some trips and see what the atmosphere is like at each school. I want to see the type of people I'd be around and that sort of thing."
"Like I said, I hope I get invited to some more Junior Days."
Mattingly and his teammates wrapped up their season two weeks ago as they lost 27-17 to Skyline in the second round of the playoffs. Still, the Panthers finished the season with a record of 10-2 and have plenty to build on as they look ahead to the 2012 campaign.
"Personally, I was happy with the way I played this year," he said. "I felt I improved a lot. My run blocking couldn't have gotten better, technique is really good. At LB, I got better at staying low and hitting people. I got a lot of picks this year too."
"We have a lot of great seniors coming back," said Mattingly. "I'm really excited for next year."
What does Mattingly (6'5, 215) bring to the gridiron?
"At LB, it's really about utilizing my speed," he said. "I take on the blocker and the ball-carrier is going down if I can get an arm on him. "
"On offense, I just make sure I get my job done," he said. "We don't throw the ball a whole lot, so it's all about being a team guy," he added.
At LB, Mattingly had 70 tackles and 5 INTs. At TE, he had 7 TD receptions.
