It has been a long, grueling recruitment for Rivals250 defensive back Montae Nicholson. The good news for the Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway star is that it is nearing its end.
Last weekend the 6-foot-2, 202-pound Nicholson took his fifth and final official visit to Virginia Tech.
"It was fun and I had a good time," Nicholson said. "It kind of opened my eyes about Virginia Tech. I liked the engineering facilities. I got to talk to the coaches and players a lot. I definitely had a good time down there. They're still in the mix like everyone else."
It sounds like the Hokies made a great impression on Nicholson but do they now sit atop his list?
"There aren't really any schools making their way towards the top," he said. "I'm still considering a lot of schools. Even though I didn't take official visits to some other schools they are still in the mix as well."
Nicholson is not taking any more visits but he says a decision is not imminent.
"It might take a little more time for me to make up my decision," said Nicholson. "I do want to get this finished."
