Nick Sloan names top three

Offensive line prospect Nick Sloan has already visited Louisville twice and will be making a return trip for the Cardinals lineman camp on June 4th. The Adairsville (GA) High School prospect told Inside The Ville that three teams currently lead the pack.

Adairsville (GA) High School offensive guard Nick Sloan spent most of his weekends during the first part of spring on the road making unofficial visits, including Louisville.

"I went up to Louisville twice, Auburn twice, Virginia Tech and Tennessee," Sloan said, adding that he met with both head coach Bobby Petrino and assistant coach Greg Nord while in Louisville.

"I'd give Louisville a ten. It really blew my socks off. The facilities were great and it was total first class."

Sloan also indicated that while interest continues to grow from programs such as Clemson and Tennessee, that he already has three school's out in front.

"I'd say that Louisville, Ohio State and Virginia Tech are my top three, but in no certain order," he said.

While he has yet to draw a scholarship offer, he realizes that his best opportunities await for him throughout the month of June.

"I just got my film out to them a week ago and now I'm going to go to some camps, so it's time to bring my 'A' game," he explained. "I'm definately going to camp at Ohio State, Louisville, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee and possibly Georgia."

He also has a good idea of what he will be searching for in a school once the scholarship offers begin to arrive.

"Of course I look at academics first. I want to become a college strength and conditioning coach and so far all the schools seem to offer some type of program for that. I'll also look at the school's tradition, playing time and what the campus is like."

Sloan projects as a center on the college level.
