Mentor (Ohio) defensive tackle Nico Lautanen has been heating up on the recruiting scene. The junior has added another offer from UTEP.
"Coach Spencer Leftwich came to Mentor in the middle of May and he said that he really likes my style of play, ambition, and leadership. He was going to review my film with the entire staff. I got a call saying the entire staff loves my film and offered me a scholarship right on the phone," he said.
Lautanen says there are several things he likes about the school.
"I really like how they are a football town, and obviously being a northeast Ohioan the weather down there is absolutely beautiful," said Lautanen.
As for his overall thoughts of he school, the junior hopes to see the school soon.
"Pretty interested, I do plan on getting down there this summer," he said.
