Vols impress Louisiana DL

Three-star Metairie (La.) Rummel defensive lineman Nader Abdallah says his official visit to Tennessee couldn’t have gone much better this weekend.
“The main thing that I liked about that place was the way I bonded with the players,” he said. “The players are really tight there – all of them. They spend a lot of time together. There was one thing we were at where about 35 or 40 players were all there together. They have a lot of team unity, and I liked the diversity there, too – white, black, hispanic, whatever. They’re a team. That was cool.
“Everything was just first class there – the players, the coaches, the facilities. It’s a great school.”
Abdallah (6-5, 290, 4.9) has made four official visits now. He’s been to Colorado, Michigan State, Ohio State and Tennessee. Only Florida State remains, and that will come next weekend on the 23rd.
“After that visit, I’ll sit down and really spend some time thinking about it,” he said. “I’m going to write down the pros and cons of each school and try to come up with a decision. It’s a hard decision right now. I like them all for different reasons.
“I like Tennessee for their players. I like Ohio State and Michigan State for their location, plus the depth chart at Michigan State. I like Colorado for the coaches and the area. They’re all great places.”
Abdallah is rated the No. 30 defensive tackle in the nation by
