"It was a good visit," said Nick Chestnut who met with ASU's defensive coordinator Brent Guy on Wednesday evening. "He's a cool guy, and he really understands players. We talked about the program and how I would fit in. He sees me as a free safety and someone who can maybe return kicks."
The 5-11 170 Chestnut admitted that his feelings towards the maroon and gold have changed following tonight's visit "Whenever you have a better feel of how someone perceives you," he said, "You're always going to look at them differently. I think I'm definitely more interested in them now."
The defensive back lists his speed and ability to play fast as his strengths, while bulking up is an area he feels that he needs to improve on.
Aside from ASU who offered Chestnut in the summer, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, and Texas A&M are others who have extended scholarship offers. The defensive back doesn't rank any of the schools in any particular order.
Chestnut will visit Tempe this weekend. "They said that they're not gonna hide anything (smile). I just want to go and tour the campus and see what Arizona State is all about." He added that he's visiting Syracuse on December 10th, and Wisconsin on the 17th. He stated that his no visits in the works aside from those three.
The defensive back can see himself making a decision later this month but not between his visits. "You never know what a school is like until you visit them," he remarked. "I don't have one favorite, so I want to see them all."
Chestnut indicated that he's academically qualified.
