Although he already has six offers, athlete Myles Nash of Sicklerville (N.J.) Timber Creek still realizes he has a great deal to prove. Nash is busy improving his game this off-season and also taking visits, including one this upcoming weekend.
"Recruiting has been going steady," said Nash. "I think a lot of schools have been hesitant with me being a little underweight, but I'm at 205-pounds now and I'm hoping to get to 220-pounds before my season starts."
Nash already had offers from Boston College, Rutgers, Kentucky, Purdue and James Madison, and added his sixth earlier today from Temple. He is also claiming increased interest recently from Wake Forest, North Carolina, Virginia, Penn State and Notre Dame. Nash will visit one of these schools this weekend.
"I'm going to Virginia on Saturday," said Nash. "I just want to develop a relationship with the coaches, check and see things out on campus, hopefully get an offer and take things from there."
Nash has also recently taken a visit to Maryland for their junior day and plans to attend a combine in Pittsburgh in April.
When he is not dealing with recruiting, Nash is making it a priority to prove any doubters wrong.
"I want to develop into a quarterback," said Nash, who is now 6-foot-5 and 205-pounds. "A lot of people doubt me and don't think I can play it at the next level because I haven't really showed them a lot of my performing at quarterback. But many don't understand my situation. Last year, in limited time, I performed well behind a three-year starter in Calvin Lowe."
While the quarterback situation did not work out for Nash at first, he remained patient.
"I stuck with it and made my presence known on defense, until it became my opportunity to take over on offense," said Nash. "I learned a lot of valuable things from playing behind Calvin. I think a lot of people will be shocked on how I perform this year and I'm hoping for people to start recruiting me for quarterback as well."
