Tide Making Run at Georgia Wide Receiver

<b>Nick Kyles</b> is 6-2, 190 pounds and a very talented wide receiver for Baldwin High School. Kyles senior season has ended and several schools are starting to turn up the heat on this talented play-maker.

"I would say the two schools recruiting me the hardest right now are Georgia and Alabama. A few other schools like Auburn and Tennessee are right behind them. Georgia is probably recruiting me the hardest overall," said Nick Kyles.

"I really don't have a favorite at all, but my top five would be Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, and Florida. Georgia, Auburn, and Alabama are above the rest right now," Kyles added.

Alabama is a new school among the favorites, and the Tide is starting to make a strong push for his signature.

"I really like Alabama. They are showing me a lot of interest. I like their quarterback, Brodie Croyle, and they are going to need some good receivers next year. The coaches have told me I would come in and play and not have to red-shirt. I would have a great chance to play for a National Championship. I watched them this year. They throw the ball a good bit, but they will throw it a lot more next year with Croyle. He is really good," said Kyles.

The Alabama wide receiver coach is making a strong impression with Kyles and looking to land another talented wide receiver from a border state. Last year Coach Harbison was successful in his efforts with three wide receivers from the state of Florida.

"Coach Cheese (Harbison) is a really good coach. He is my recruiting coach and position coach. I really like him a lot. He is straight forward. He told me they will be using a lot of receivers next year and I would not be red-shirting. I have not been able to speak with Coach Shula yet."

Kyles knows what he likes about the remaining two schools of his Top 3.

Georgia: "It's close to home and they have been recruiting me since the tenth grade. I really like the coaching staff and I like the program."

Auburn: "I have always liked Auburn. They are about to win a national championship and I just really like them."

"I am really trying to find the place I feel the most comfortable. I want to be able to play and go somewhere I will be able to help out the most. I am going to find the school that my family likes the most."

With two official visits confirmed, and other dates to follow, the decision might go to signing day.

"I am going to Alabama on December 10, and I am going to Georgia on January 23. I know I am going to go to Auburn and Tennessee sometime in January, but a date has not been set. I am going to wait until after my visits before I make a decision," said Kyles.

Kyles plays point guard for Baldwin. In his first game, he scored 15 points. Baldwin went to the elite 8 last year, before falling to the eventual state champions. They return all five starters and looking to win a state championship.
