OSU FNL: Nathaniel Devers

Ohio State held their first-ever Friday Night Lights camp recently, and several highly-rated prospects attended, including many from 2014. Nathaniel Devers impressed with his quick feet and strength.

Massillon junior offensive lineman Nathaniel Devers was one of several top 2014 prospects in attendance last week for Ohio State's Friday Night Lights camp.

Devers, 6-foot-3, 275-pounds, showed strength at the point of attack, and was easily the fastest of the offensive linemen.

"I thought I did alright today, but I could have done better," Devers stated. "You always think you could be better, and I thought I leaned too much on my kick-set one time. For the most part, I did a good job of using my hands and my feet together. When it came to the speed drills, I won all of them pretty easily, and my quickness is one of my best assets."

With an early offer from Toledo, and several top programs showing interest, this was Ohio State's chance to impress Devers.

"It was good working with Coach (Ed) Warriner, and I think if I got to know him more we would really get along," he explained. "Ohio State didn't really say much to me at all. Mike Vrabel is recruiting me, and he told me we would stay in touch this season."

"My top two are Michigan and Northwestern, with Michigan still at number-one for good reason," he stressed. "At Michigan, the coaches are great and they have really hit home with me. They spend a lot of time with me, and we have connected."

Even though Devers has a clear leader at this time, he insists a commitment is not on the horizon, even should bigger offers come in.

"There's no chance I would commit now, and every school still has a chance with me," he continued. "No matter who might offer today, I wouldn't consider committing. I've already decided I will make my commitment in the spring of 2013. After the Michigan event on Sunday, my focus will be all about Massillon football."

"My only goal is a state championship for our team," he added. "I want us to dominate the offensive line as a group, and win every game."
