Junior defensive end Nick Arcidiacono of Warminster (Pa.) Archbishop Wood dealt with a few injuries during the fall, but still was a major part of his team's state championship season. Now with more time on his hands, the junior is looking to hit the road to visit a few more schools.
"Recruiting has been going well and I've been talking to several coaches," said Arcidacono, who discussed his next visit. "I'm going up to Boston College for their junior day in late January. I'm excited to see how everything goes."
Aside from Boston College, Arcidiacono is also claiming increased interest from Rutgers, Maryland, Miami, Nebraska and Purdue. He has already taken a couple of visits this fall and is hoping to take a few more after Boston College.
"I took two visits to Penn State and was unable to make any other visits because of my schedule," said Arcidiacono. "I don't have any more planned, but I definitely want to go visit Rutgers, Maryland and maybe Miami."
On these upcoming visits, Arcidiacono has an idea of what he will be looking for.
"I would like to talk to the coaches and see their style of coaching," said Arcidiacono, who is 6-foot-4 and 230-pounds. "I want to play early so I'm looking for a school that is in the need of my position."
Injuries may have slowed down his junior season, but he still fought through the tough times to become a major contributor.
"I played defensive end and on offense I played several positions, including guard, tackle and tight end," said Arcidiacono. "I was plagued with injuries for a lot of the season and missed some games, but for the most part, the season went well and I'm excited to get my film out."
Winning a state championship was obviously a highlight for Arcidiacono.
"It was just an awesome year," said Arcidiacono. "When we lost the first game of the season, we did everything we could to not let that effect our main goal of the season. We really learned from that and we eventually just clicked and were on a roll. Our team is so close and we all play for each other. It was just the best experience of my life."
