Visits and a decision in the future for Nash

As one of the top JUCO defensive line prospects in the country, Iowa Western's Devon Nash (6-4, 250) has plenty of suitors, but he's narrowed things down a bit and will focus on making his decision following the Reivers' matchup this weekend with Butler for the NJCAA National Championship...

"Things have been going great and we're excited to play for a championship," Nash told recently. "We definitely are happy to be where we are, but we need to finish this thing out and it's going to be against a really good team, so we have our work cut out for us."

As a freshman this past season, Nash posted 44 tackles, 7.5 tackles-for-loss and 4.5 sacks from his defensive end position and this year, while helping to lead his team to a number-one ranking in the NJCAA poll, the talented defensive end has posted 32 tackles, 4.5 sacks, nine tackles-for-loss and one interception.

His productivity to go along with his ideal size and speed combo have nabbed him offers from school all over the country including Akron, Arizona State, Kansas, Kansas State, Memphis, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma State, San Jose State, Texas Tech, Troy, West Virginia, Western Kentucky and Western Michigan and he's set up his second and third official visits and has eyes on possibly one more before he makes his decision.

"I visited Arizona State back during the season and it was a really good visit," Nash said. "We play our game against Butler this coming weekend (12/1) and then I will visit Kansas State the week after that (12/7) and then Oklahoma State the week after that (12/14).

"I'm going to sign with a school in the mid-year signing period, so if I take any more visits they will have to be mid-week visits. That's why I am a little unsure if I will take them or not, but we'll see how things wind up going."

Nash will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.

We will continue to keep track of Nash and his progress and will have updates as news breaks.
