Delic Takes Visit To Kentucky

2010 Terps commit Nermin Delic visited Kentucky this past weekend.

Nermin Delic will be taking his versatility with him wherever he goes next year.

A part of the 2010 class, Delic starts on both sides of the ball for the 4-2 Northwest Whitfield County High School in Georgia, and has verbally committed to Maryland. Delic has also shown interest in Kentucky with an unofficial visit.

While his senior season started off slow, Delic says the team picked it up. He is working in particular on his own technique and footwork. “Just the small fundamental stuff,” he said.

Delic liked what he saw at Maryland during his one-day camp in June, and he has another visit lined up for December.

“It was pretty awesome,” he said. “Everything was nice; the facilities, the campus, and the coaches.”

At Maryland Delic talked to first year assistant coach Charles Bankins who is the special teams coordinator and tight ends coach.

His role with the Terps lies heavily on himself.

“They just told me it depends on how I come in here, and how much I weigh, and how hard I work,” said Delic.

Delic's visit to Kentucky was on a gameday, where he arrived late and missed some time talking with the staff before the game. After the game, he talked with the Wildcats tight end coach.

“They told me they really need me here,” he said. “They really like me, and they think I can play next year.”

While Maryland expressed interest in Delic as a tight end, Kentucky sees defensive end as a way to get him on the field quicker.

“I like tight end, I like catching the ball. I like blocking, and I think my blocking is pretty solid,” he said. “I also like reading blocks, and making tackles. Whatever way I can get on the field.”
