Willoughby (Ohio) South quarterback Patrick Nicely landed his first scholarship offer on Tuesday. And the 6-foot-4, 209-pound pro-style passer was definitely excited about it.
"I got an offer from Bowling Green," Nicely, who is one of the top signal-callers in the Midwest, said.
"My school goes to Bowling Green in the summer for 7-on-7 passing camp. That's where they first saw me. I'm very honored that they'd even consider me for an offer.
"They're a great school. They have a great quarterback coach. He's a very knowledgeable guy (Jim Hofher). They've also got a pretty good atmosphere up there, and they've been known to put out some really good quarterbacks in the past."
Even though the offer is exciting, Nicely said he's not in any rush to make a decision.
"I'm definitely going to wait and see what the recruiting process entails," he said. "I've been to several camps and have big plans for the next few weeks. I'm going to the NIKE Camp and the Elite 11 tryouts at Penn State, and I'm going to go to Ohio State's camp and then to the camp up at Brown's Stadium."
When it comes to other colleges showing interest, Nicely said a consistent group has emerged.
"I'm getting a lot of stuff from Tennessee, Northwestern, Harvard, Miami of Ohio, and Boston College just called my coach and said they're interested in seeing me this spring," he said. "I'm really excited about that. I like BC a lot."
Nicely said he's been staying busy this spring with baseball. Not only does he pitch, but he plays third base. On the gridiron, Nicely threw for 2,150 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior.
