The No. 4 tight end in the country is back from his official visit to Ohio State. Are the Buckeyes the team to beat for Beaver (Pa.) Area tight end Rory Nicol?
"The visit was great," said the 6-foot-5, 240-pounder of OSU. "My host was Curt Lukens and I got to meet and hang with all the players. I would say I liked the visit quite a bit and I got to meet with coach Tressel and coach Conley and they told me how much they wanted me to be a Buckeye."
Nicol has already visited Pitt and Florida and has a mid-week visit set with Georgia Tech.
"I leave for GTech Tuesday and come back Thursday, then I head off to Virginia for my last trip," he said. "I want to decide and announce on Dec. 20. I'm looking for a school with great atmosphere, but most importantly is the team unity. I want a school where the players are like family."
And who leads?
"I can't say right now," he said. "I still have two visits left."
Nicol led his team to a 10-2 record with 19 catches and five scores this season.
