Cards in the mix for visit from Joe Nicholas

Joe Nicholas, a 6'2, 185 pound, standout defensive back/ wide receiver from Homestead, Florida, holds several offers, including one from Louisville. Nicholas is considering five programs for official visits and he's close to receiving an offer from a big time Florida power. Where will Nicholas visit? Which offer is Nicholas waiting for?

Joseph Nicholas is emerging as one of the top two-way players in South Florida this year and probably the entire state. The Homestead standout talked about the latest.

"We've only played three games and we've won two of them," Nicholas said. "We have a big game against Palmetto this week, a district game. I've been having a good year so far on both sides of the ball and I expect to only get better down the stretch."

Nicholas starts at wide receiver opposite Alphonso Bryant and also starts at free safety. He has 20 tackles on defense and is leading the team with seven catches for 188 yards and four touchdowns. He's clearly become Homestead's big play receiver this year.

"I feel like whenever my team needs a big play, I'm gonna be there to deliver it," he said. "We have some good players on this team so I don't get as many chances as some other guys around the county."

Nicholas, 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, does not have any visits scheduled yet on the recruiting front but he has a good idea of where he wants to go.

"I've been talking mostly to Miami, Arizona State, Wisconsin, Louisville, and Auburn and those would be good visits to take," he said. "Arizona State, Wisconsin, and Louisville have already offered me. UM has started to pick it up lately. I've been talking to Coach Walton. Him and the receivers coach came to my game last week. They said the offer should be in the mail sometime this week."

Nicholas says he's looking for two things when it comes time to make a decision.

"I'm looking at academics and a school that I know I can play early at," he said.
