COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Going into the camp, Killeen (Texas) Harker Heights receiver Nick Trice was holding his first offer from Oklahoma State. He had a feeling another Big 12 school, that had been pushing hard lately, would join the mix.
After his camp performance, the 6-foot-2, 180-pounder added another one. His coach informed him that he can add one more to that list.
"My coach told me that Texas A&M offered me," Trice said. "The coaches actually came and visited my school the other day before all this so I knew that they were interested. I was pretty excited about the offer. I guess I did a good job out there and got noticed."
Trice says that the one-on-ones were limited reps, but he really enjoyed working with his position coaches.
"When it was just receivers, I think I really did well," Trice said. "I got to show what I could do. I didn't get as many reps as I would have wanted elsewhere."
This was not just another combine for Trice. After really shining at Penn State last year, this was one of the first camp appearances since his injury that kept him out for his whole junior year.
"This was very important," Trice said. "I have to show everyone that I'm back to 100 percent.
"They know that I'm back now."
Trice played his freshman and sophomore years in Germany. As a sophomore he had 23 receptions for 457 yards and seven touchdowns. He as an all-district and all-European selection during his sophomore season.
