A star keeps rising higher in Dade City, as Pasco sophomore wide receiver and defensive back Nate Craig has now collected 15 collegiate offers.
On Wednesday, Craig, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound specimen, picked up offers from Indiana and Georgia Tech, Pirates defensive backs coach Chad Hatfield tweeted.
Craig, who had just 18 catches for 299 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012, plus four interceptions at safety, also has offers from Texas Tech, UMass, Ohio State, Mississippi State, Clemson, Tennessee, Rutgers, Vanderbilt, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Wisconsin and Ole Miss.
Craig will most likely be on display Thursday, as Pasco travels to rival Land O’ Lakes at 7 p.m. for the teams’ spring game.

The awards keep rolling in for Wharton High defensive back Vernon Hargreaves III.
The Touchdown Club of Atlanta has selected the University of Florida signee as the top defensive back in the nation, according to Wharton coach David Mitchell, and will present Hargreaves with a special award during a ceremony at Wharton on May 28th at 1:30 p.m.
Each year, the club bestows upon two athletes the Bobby Dodd National High School Back and Lineman of the Year Awards, given to the players regarded as the top athletes moving on to the college ranks. The awards are named in honor of the late Bobby Dodd, the former Georgia Tech head football coach and athletic director.
Hargreaves accounted for 110 tackles and five interceptions during his senior year and received the Guy Toph Award, which goes to Hillsborough County’s top player. He was also named a Parade Magazine All-American and was named MVP of the Under Armour All-American game in January.
Hargreaves was ranked as one of the country’s top five prep players by many scouting services, including ESPN, which had him rated as the nation’s top cornerback and the No. 3 overall prospect.

Though Pasco’s Nate Craig already has numerous offers, the rising sophomore star pulled in his first in-state offer Tuesday morning.
Pirates coach Tom McHugh tweeted that Craig received a phone call from Florida Gators head coach Will Muschamp, who then proceeded to give the 6-foot-3, 200-pound WR/DB his ninth Division I offer. Less than two hours later, Craig said via his Facebook page that Florida State gave him his 10th offer.
Craig, who had 18 catches for 299 yards and seven touchdowns as a freshman in 2012, already had three SEC offers: Tennessee, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt, but also already had five more offers: Texas Tech, UMass, Ohio State, Clemson and Rutgers.
Craig also had four interceptions and five pat downs playing safety last season, while there should be more offers for the rising recruit before Pasco travels to Land O’ Lakes for its Spring Game on May 23 at 7 p.m.
Pasco ATH Malik Johns picks up first offer: FAU

It is about time.
That’s what Pasco football coach Tom McHugh had to say when one of his star senior players finally picked up his first Division I offer. It was ATH Malik Johns, who was offered by Florida Atlantic on Tuesday morning.
“FAU!!! It is about time,” McHugh said via Twitter.
Johns began to shine in 2012 when he stepped into other roles to fill in for Janarion Grant, who suffered a broken hand days before the season started. Johns would then lead the team in receiving with 15 catches for 390 yards and six TD before a late-season ankle injury kept him limited in action.
Johns was also good in the secondary, picking off a pass during the region semifinal vs. Gainesville Eastside and batting down a team-high six passes. Johns also proved to be a great punt returner, racking up 492 return yards.
