Latest On Nick Vannett

Westerville (OH) Central tight end Nick Vannett was a relative unknown in recruiting circles throughout 2009, but as his film started making the rounds in January, the offers started to roll in. Vannett holds over 25 offers and has now cut his list to 11 schools, but indicated that could change should any new offers come in. Bill Greene has the latest on Vannett.

Westerville (OH) Central tight end Nick Vannett has gone from being an after-thought in the 2011 class of Ohio prospects, to one of the highest-recruited players in the state in the past five months.

Vannett, 6-foot-6, 230-pounds, became a hot commodity in the recruiting world once his film became available, and college recruiters responded favorably to what they saw.

Although he currently holds over 25 offers, Vannett has decided to cut his list to 11 schools, although the possibility of new offers still coming in could see more schools added.

"My list is in no particular order right now," Vannett stated. "My top schools are Arizona, Iowa, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, Oregon, Purdue and South Florida."

"Oregon is the latest school to offer," he continued. "There could be a couple more schools that might be offering as well. I'm not close to making a decision at all."

Vannett also addressed an internet rumor that started Sunday night, that he had committed to Ohio State. The Buckeyes did receive a Sunday evening commitment from Centerville (OH) defensive lineman Michael Bennett.

"I did not commit to anyone and I'm still thinking things over," Vannett stressed. "I don't know where that rumor came from, but it's definitely not true."
