"I have an offer from Northern Illinois," said quarterback Dan Nicholson.
"My favorites are Purdue, Illinois, Northern Illinois, Michigan State and Western Michigan.
"I've already been to Boston College. I visited Purdue and loved it. I went to the Illinois quarterback camp and I went to Indiana for a day."
Nicholson, a 6-foot-3, 190-pounder, from Chicago (Brother Rice) is one of the top five signal callers in Illinois.
Nicholson passed for 1,500 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior. He was named all-area and all-conference.
