Nicholson talks Florida State visit

Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway 2014 four-star safety Montae Nicholson has already taken official visits to Michigan State and Pittsburgh this season. This weekend he will take his third to Florida State for the Maryland game.

While this will be his first visit to Tallahassee, it will not be his first time seeing the Seminoles live. Nicholson was in attendance for the Florida State-Pittsburgh game, and like what he saw out of the Seminoles defense. "FSU was very aggressive and the DBs had great run support," Nicholson said.

The Florida State coaching staff is one of the reasons Nicholson wants to check out the Seminoles. He is hoping to get more familiar with the school on this visit.

"The [FSU] coaches are very genuine and they seem to care a lot about their players," Nicholson said. "I just want to learn more about the school as a whole."

Florida State defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach Jeremy Pruitt really stands out to Nicholson.

"[He is] very wise and I could definitely see myself playing under him," said Nicholson. As far as distance goes Nicholson says that it will not play a factor in his recruitment.

"Not at all," Nicholson said. "Wherever the best opportunity is, that's where I will be."

The 6-foot-3, 203-pound safety is the No. 15 rated safety and the No. 168 player overall in the 2014 Scout 300. He plans on playing in the Army All-American game. Nicholson has his fourth official visit planned to Oregon, but he isn't sure who will get the fifth. He plans on making his decision once all of his officials are taken.
