Severs Camping at Iowa

Nick Severs already holds three scholarship offers. The Class of 2013 offensive lineman from McComb, IL is heading out to camps next month in search for more. He's scheduled to be in Iowa City.

If Nick Severs were to end up playing football at Iowa, his parents would be just fine with it. They could visit their two sons in college on the same trip.

Grant Severs, Nick's brother, is a freshman in pre-dentistry at Iowa. Nick is a Class of 2013 Offensive Lineman from McComb (IL) Senior High.

"(Iowa Assistant) Coach (Lester) Erb was (at McComb Senior) during the beginning of the (spring) evaluation period," Nick Severs said. "I've been talking with him and with Coach (Brian) Ferentz, the offensive line coach. We've talked a lot, but the big thing is getting up to camp so they can see me. I'm really excited to get a chance to work out in front of them in camp."

Severs is scheduled to attend an Iowa camp on June 10. He's expected to be at Illinois on the 13th and Iowa State on the 14th and 15th. He reports scholarship offers from Western Michigan, Western Illinois and Illinois State.

Iowa State, Iowa, Illinois, Wyoming, Ball State, Toledo, Miami of Ohio, Western Michigan visited Severs at McComb Senior this spring, he said. He got out to Iowa, Illinois, Illinois State, Iowa State, Western Michigan and Wisconsin this spring.

"Wyoming, Ball State and Miami of Ohio have probably been recruiting me the hardest of the schools that have not offered me," Severs said. "Big Ten wise, Northwestern has probably been in contact the most."

Severs said the Wildcats coaches were scheduled to visit him at McComb Senior this week.

Severs (6-4, 260) plays tackle in high school. He feels he could slide down to guard or center at the college level. His goal is to play for a BCS school.

"I think it's a matter of getting into camps and them seeing pass-pro in person and also drive blocking; run blocking," Severs said.

Severs is considering majors in kinesiology or business. He's looking to locate a football program in which he feels comfortable.

"The biggest thing for me is finding a family atmosphere," Severs said. "I want to have great relationships with the coaches and play with guys where it's about the team."
