Hampton (Va.) Hampton wide receiver Todd Nolen. is one of the top prospects in Virginia for 2005. Nolen now has three scholarship offers with many more schools lining up to get his attention.
“Right now I have three scholarship offers. Virginia, Nebraska, Virginia Tech are the schools that have offered and others are showing me a lot of attention,” said the 6-foot-4, 175-pound playmaker.
What other schools are recruiting Nolen the hardest?
“Maryland, Tennessee, and Ohio State are the ones that are showing me the most interest outside of the schools that have already offered me a scholarship. I get letters from close to 30 different schools per week.”
Does Nolen have a leader?
“Virginia has a slight lead on the rest of the pack. I like their offense and how balanced it is. I know that they are looking to bring in guys this year that can stretch the field and make plays from the receiver position. Nebraska and Virginia Tech are right there though. Nebraska is implementing more of a passing game and Virginia Tech is going to open up their offense more this year as well.”
Currently, Nolen is playing centerfield for Hampton High School. He is batting .275 and has 11 stolen bases on the year. Nolen will be in attendance at the NIKE Camp at Charlottesville this weekend.
