WR Now Lists UM Offer

The last time the University of Miami offered a kid from Immokalee High School in the southwest part of the state, it turned out to be a pretty good investment. Edgerrin James left UM as one of its most successful players ever. UM coaches returned to the school this past spring to evaluate wide receiver/cornerback McIntosh Nicolas, who clocked a 4.3/40 at the University of Florida camp over the summer.

At 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, Nicolas will begin his season against Lely on Friday night.

"I'll be going both ways," he said. "I wanna score three or four touchdowns but I also want the W. That's most important."

Nicolas has been busy talking to college coaches this week.

"I've talked to coaches from Florida, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, UConn, I can't even remember them all," he said. "It's definitely keeping me on my toes."

The talented receiver said he got a call from UM receivers coach Curtis Johnson earlier this week.

"The receivers coach from Miami called me," he said. "He was just talkin, seeing what's going on. He was telling me how they really want me to visit and that they have a scholarship offer for me. I was pretty excited about all that. They're definitely one of the places I plan on visiting."

In addition to the Hurricanes, Nicolas has offers from several other programs.

"I'll visit Miami and Florida from in-state and probably LSU, Georgia, and Michigan out of state," he said. "That would be the five right there. I just want to have fun this season and then go check everyone out."

Nicolas said he had plans of attending the Gator game this week but might not make it.

"I was going to go with someone but he can't make it and then I had someone else to go with and now I don't think he can make it," he said. "I wanna go but I don't know if I'll be able to."
