Camden (N.J.) Woodrow Wilson offensive tackle Nyere Aumaitre has four official visits planned, and has his fifth trip narrowed down to three choices. He visited Pitt last weekend, but as it turns out, that trip was unofficial, and the Panthers are not a team high on his list.
He attended the Pitt - Miami game unofficially last weekend, and although he likes the Panthers, one thing really stood out to him.
“I talked to the coach and they have a good recruiting class, but it was just freezing up there,” he commented. “I didn’t get to see the facilities or anything.”

Nyere has already visited Nebraska (Oct. 24) and Tennessee (Nov. 22) officially, and will visit Iowa on Dec. 12 and Virginia on Jan. 16. His final will visit will come down to Florida, NC State, or Michigan State.
“All of them (the three vying for his last visit) have said they have offered, but the first one I get one from on paper will get a visit,” he explained. Tennessee (Slade) came in for an in-home visit today, and Nebraska’s Coach Williams and Coach Wilson visited his school today.
Aumaitre was enamored with his visit to Nebraska and the Cornhuskers were very high on his list, but since the coaching change in Lincoln, he has begun to reconsider things.
“Any favorites?" He said. “No, I can’t say. I just heard from Nebraska and I don’t know. If the head coach is fired, then it is not stable. I think the DC or D-Line coach will be head coach, and I don’t know if I want to go through that.”
Nebraska, Tennessee, and Iowa had been his top three, but now he said he is wide open. The social life and academics are the two things he is looking for in the schools he is considering, and he plans to take all of his visits, then decide afterwards.
At 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, Nyere runs the 40-yard dash in 5.1 seconds. He is rated the No. 35 offensive tackle in America by Rivals.com. He has a 900 on the SAT and is working diligently to gain the necessary GPA to get into college.
