Devers Holds Five Offers

Massillon two-way lineman Nathaniel Devers had an impressive sophomore season in 2012, and college recruiters have taken notice. Devers holds five offers and has had several BCS schools visit him this month.

Nathaniel Devers had an impressive junior season at Massillon last year, and the 2014 lineman is one of Ohio's top prospects.

Devers, 6-foot-4, 270-pounds, played both guard and defensive tackle for the Tigers. He has hit the radar of college programs and is drawing a lot of interest.

"I have five offers right now," Devers stated. "I have Akron, Buffalo, Bowling Green, Ohio University and Toledo. This spring I visited Toledo, and I'm definitely going to Michigan State for camp this summer."

"I'm hoping to get back to Northwestern again, and possibly Connecticut," he added. "UCONN is probably the closest BCS school to offering, and they are supposed to let me know something in the next month."

Several schools have already been to Massillon during the current evaluation period checking out Devers, and many more are expected in May.

"West Virginia is also showing interest, and I probably will visit there, and possibly Ohio State," he explained. "UCONN was in the school Friday and they said they really like me as a player. They wanted to see how tall I was, and they said I'm their number-one recruit in Ohio. They are thin on the offensive line, and I'm very interested in them."

"Michigan State said they are recruiting me as a defensive lineman, and they said I could also play on offense for them," Devers said. "I like the coaching staff at Michigan State and they have great facilities. I would also say Illinois and Indiana are very interested. The recruiting process has been very exciting to me."

Although listed as an offensive lineman, Devers could definitely project as a defensive tackle at the next level.

"Most schools are split on me between offensive line and defensive line," he added. It doesn't matter to me at all, and I will play wherever these schools feel I help the team best at."
