RECRUITING: Nyang 'chillin' - not interested in UK

With his senior season past him, Marietta (Ga.) native and Wheeler High School product Mam Nyang is spending more time on recruiting. Has any new teams come to the fore front since his last update?

"Nah," Nyang said. "There are no new offers. No new schools. I've just been chillin' really. Seeing if anything comes up."

"I do have a new top five, though," Nyang explained. "Louisville, Florida State, Southern Miss., Marshall and Georgia.

Florida State and Georgia have not extended an offer to the talented defensive end, although an anticipated test score could change that.

"They are both waiting on my test scores," Nyang reintroduced. "They both said if I get my SAT score, they will offer. I took the test last month and they said the results should be coming back either today or tomorrow."

Louisville and a host of other schools felt that the Georgia product was well worth the risk.

"I'm feeling Louisville," Nyang said. "They got a real good program and they win alot. If I had to pick a team, I'd probably pick them right now."

The Kentucky Wildcats, a team that was one of the first to extend an offer nearly five months ago have all but disappeared from Nyang's list.

"It's difficult because they lost so much this year," Nyang said. "I just don't wanna go to a place that loses so much, or (a place) where they wander if the coach is gonna come back or not."

Nyang finished the season with 75 tackles and three sacks. The massive 6-foot-5 225 pounder also accounted for 12 tackles for loss, three caused fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 10 games for Wheeler.
