Delic Maybe Looking Around?

The state of Georgia has been good to Kentucky in the Rich Brooks era. The Wildcats are working to bring another prospect to Lexington, a player who's a transplant to Georgia. KSR speaks to Southwest Whitfield County High coach Mike Falleur about Nermin Delic.

The state of Georgia has been good to Kentucky in the Rich Brooks era. The Wildcats are working to bring another prospect to Lexington, a player who's a transplant to Georgia. KSR speaks to Southwest Whitfield County High coach Mike Falleur about Nermin Delic.

Nermin Delic (6-5, 240-pounds) committed to Maryland back on June 20th, but only a week after making that commitment, he received an offer from Kentucky and he decided to take a visit up to Lexington. "He really enjoyed (the visit)," said Mike Falleur, Southwest Whitfield County's head coach.

Delic, a native of Bosnia, is receiving attention from several ACC and SEC schools, with offers from Maryland, Kentucky, Marshall, East Carolina and interest from Georgia, Vanderbilt, North Carolina State and Clemson.

"He's just a guy that's a good all-around athlete. He's very physical and loves to play the game," said Falleur. "He's about 245 right now, but he'll be a 265 or 275-pound tight end or defensive end," he finished.

"Obviously he needs to work on his strength to play in the SEC or where ever he ends up going. I think you can never be fast enough and he's got to get better with his technique," said Falleur.

So with the ability to play on either side of the ball, where does Falleur think Delic will fit in? "Our quarterback is not a thrower. It's hard to know how good a tight end he can be. He's got good hands and he's a great blocker. But he's also a good player on defense. He's very physical using his hands. I don't think Nermin cares (about where he plays)," he said.

So is he wavering on his commitment to the Terps? "Not that I know of. He hasn't decommitted. I think he's wanting to make sure about where he goes. But he liked what he saw Saturday (in Lexington)."

At this point in time, there are no additional visits scheduled for Delic.
