"I went to the Nike camp at USC," lineman Brandon Nicolas said. "And I went to the USC camp for a day and Notre Dame's camp for a day."
"Notre Dame, UCLA, Ohio State, Arizona State, and Colorado, those are my top five. All of them except Notre Dame offered me."
"I don't have a favorite right now, just those five. I'd like to commit before the start of the season."
The 6-foot-5 and 260 pounder from Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei started at tackle on both sides of the ball during his junior season. Nicolas was conference lineman of the year and won various other awards as well. He made 40 tackles including 14 behind the line of scrimmage.
