Nate Dogg's Son Naijiel Hale Accepts a Football Scholarship From the University of Arizona

Nate Dogg's son Naijiel Hale is going to be known for more than just being "Nate Dogg's son" soon. Hale—a four-star cornerback, according to Scout.com—just announced that he will be taking his talents to the University of Arizona to play football after he graduates from St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif. next spring. He made the announcement at ESPNU's "The Opening" event earlier this week.

"I've known I've wanted to play for them since the day they offered me [a scholarship]," he said. "They've been my top school since Day 1. I've been in love with the coaching staff they have. I've just loved everything about the school since they offered me."

Hale also received several other scholarship offers earlier this year, including one from Boise State. It's good to see him making a name for himself on the football field.
