Exclusive Details

0205-naijiel-hale-washington-instagramNate Dogg's high school football star son Naijiel Hale is gonna be a Husky ... 'cause he officially accepted a full-scholarship to the University of Washington, TMZ Sports has learned.

Naijiel -- one of the top prep cornerbacks in the country -- tells us, "I'm very excited. I can't wait for this experience."

Hale tells us he's been working out in the gym twice a day and focusing on his speed -- while he currently runs the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds, Naijiel says he's working to bring it down to a 4.5 in the next 2 weeks.

As far as academics go, Hale says he's not sure what subject he wants to major in ... but tells us he's interested in studying music and business.

"My mom is extremely proud and my dad would be proud too ... I can't wait to be a dawg!"

Wow    

Congratulations to Naijie! Unfortunately, his father died in 2011 so he can't pay for his son's college education. True ignorance.
