Retired CoD pro & 100 Thieves CEO Nadeshot wants to compete in college eSports

Former professional Call of Duty player and current founder, CEO of 100 Thieves is 30 years old and ready for his college redemption journey. After dropping out his sophomore year, he’s now ready to return as an NCAA D1 e-sports athlete.

It’s no secret that gaming and eSports are getting bigger every year. Between amateurs and pros, another scene continues to emerge: NCAA eSports.

In the past year alone, Call of Duty has carved even more in the collegiate world – with more than 50 teams in College CoD League and a number of former professional players join the schools to compete.

Now, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag is considering joining the ranks. While he currently runs his gaming and esports organization, 100 Thieves, the former OpTic Gaming CoD captain seems poised to take the reins again.

Nadeshot dropped out of his sophomore year of college to continue his CoD career, which spanned from 2009 to 2015. In the time since he made his mark on the community as a content creator and 100T founder.

Now, as he explains in a March 1 tweet, he wonders if that dropout means he’s still eligible to join a competitive D1 school.

Regarding Nade’s goals, he set out a rather simple wish: “I’m trying to be the first D1 Esports player 30 years old.” Almost immediately, the schools began to respond – interested in helping him achieve that goal.

While not sure if he wants to play CoD or Valorant for a college, he seems ready to go and is looking for an offer. As the CEO asked in his tweet: “Are there any schools that get a full ride for me?”

For now, several teams appear to be getting ready to open their admissions offices. To date, the University of St. Edwards, University of Maryville, Illinois State University, and several others all have answered to Nade’s tweets with varying degrees of interest in his services.
