Nicholson close to cuts

One recruit to keep an eye on in the near future is Montae Nicholson. The defensive back from Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway has plenty of offers but has yet to make any cuts to his list.
"There's nothing really new in my recruitment," said the 6-foot-2, 202-pound Nicholson. "I haven't really had time to narrow my list any for these unofficial visits yet. I'm trying to do that soon but I've been busy with summer track."
Some schools are making a strong case to stay in the running for Nicholson.

"I don't really know which schools will get a visit because it's all about time and availability," he said. "Pittsburgh, Temple, Oregon, Stanford, Miami, Michigan, Penn State, West Virginia and Virginia Tech are all schools I've been in touch with."
Though some might find it odd that Temple is included on that list, Nicholson is more than comfortable, to say the least, with Owls assistant coach Terry Smith. This is Smith's first year on the staff at Temple because he was the head coach at Gateway last season.
"Coach Terry is doing well," Nicholson said. "He just told me the other day about (my teammate) Anthony Davis committing to Temple."
Nicholson could be making some tough choices in the near future.
"I'd like to narrow things down as soon as possible," he said. "There's a possibility that I do it next week. I need to sit down with my mom and figure it out. I'll do my visits after I narrow my list down."
Nicholson participated in the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge Presented by Under Armour at Soldier Field in Chicago earlier this month.
