"I went to Maryland this past weekend and Kentucky the week before that," Eli Nichols said. "Maryland hasn't offered me yet, but I got to meet with the players and coaches. They'll be letting me know on my offer by the end of the year. Kentucky was real nice, too. They already offered me, but I told them I wanted to take some more visits. I'm going to Duke on January 11, Tulane on January 18, and Miami on January 25."
Nichols has received in-home visits this month from Tulane, Duke, and Kentucky. In addition to the Wildcats, Duke and Tulane have also offered scholarships.
Nichols is a 6-foot-4, 225-pound defensive end from Crawfordville, Fla.
"I'm kind of open right now still," he said. "I have to wait and see which schools are going to offer me a scholarship. And I still have three more trips to take."
