Saturday Nick toured the Ole Miss campus as part of their junior day event. It will not be the last meet and greet excursion the big man takes.
With offers from Mississippi State and Ole Miss, Redmond has seen interest from other schools increase despite his commitment to Mississippi State.
"I am getting a lot of letters. Auburn, Tennessee, Arkansas, South Carolina, Stanford, Illinois, Stanford and a few more schools are writing me," said "Alabama's probably writing the most of those schools by far. They send a lot of game recaps and stats on the schools."
By committing early, Nick feels relieved to have a lot of the drama of the recruiting process behind him. At the same time he still wants to enjoy some of what the process has to offer.
"I haven't been to many schools before, so I am just taking some trips," said Redmond. "I just want to be sure I have made the best decision for myself. I am still committed to Mississippi State and I gave them my word. It would take an awful lot to make me go back on my word.
"When I was at Ole Miss the coaches told me they wanted me real bad, but it's not going to change anything."
Nick reports his focus is on Harrison Central football and their search for a new head coach.
"They said they are going to announce who the new coach is going this week, but they have been saying that for a month," said Redmond. "It would be nice to know now, so we can have some organization to everything. We all just want to know who it is, so we can get ready for spring practice."
