Nye, who stands just under 6-foot-5, has started to see his football interest rise as coaches learn more about the sport he excels at right now as one of Ohio's top wrestlers.
Nye, whose playing weight in football this past season was just over 230-pounds, has now cut it to below 220-pounds to stay in his weight class on the mat.
Despite the question of where Nye projects, he's hearing from several and waiting for that first offer.
"I have no offers yet but I'm getting a lot of mail," said Nye. "I still want an offer and hope to earn one soon. Schools seem to be recruiting me as a defensive end or tackle. I don't really know at this point.
One program that caught Nye's eye stopped in recently to learn more.
"Ohio State stopped by school to check on several of us," said Nye. "I've talked with (assistant) Coach (Tim) Hinton and he said I looked good and it looked like I had been in the weight room. He also asked how wrestling was going."
Look for Nye to start picking up more interest as he continues to work on his football skills and fills out his frame.
