Plenty of schools are interested in Lancaster (Pa.) Lancaster Catholic defensive end Tom Nardo. The only problem for the 6-foot-2, 234-pounder is that he hasn't received an offer to date.
"I went to a bunch of camps this summer," he said. "All the schools I talked to including North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Iowa, Boston College, Duke, Louisville and more are interested. They continue to say I'm in the mix and they want to see more senior film before offering."
Nardo claims to have no leaders at this time.
"It's really hard to name a favorite when I don't have any offers," he said. "I feel like I have to leave all my options open.
"It depends what comes. I'm going to see what the school offers, the caliber of program it is and my thoughts about the team before committing. Basically I want somewhere I'm going to play. I don't want to be one of those guys that end up on special teams. It would also be nice to go to a program that is good and wants to win."
The two-star prospect is seeing a big improvement in his ability in preparation for the upcoming season.
"I can see that I'm definitely a lot faster and my hand technique is better. That is one thing a lot of colleges said I need to work on," he stated. "This season I still want to work on my pass rush, but it's hard because we run a 3-5 defense."
