WR Plans to Visit UM

At 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, Immokalee, Fla. standout wide receiver McIntosh Nicolas entered his season without a lot of the hype that surrounds other in-state receivers such as Xavier Carter and Mike McIntosh.

However, Nicolas has a size/speed combination that's tough to find and an attitude that has him believing he can match up with anyone.

"In my mind, I'm the best," Nicolas said. "I feel there really ain't nobody out there that can sotp me. I'll prove it. I'm just having fun and trying to help my team win because that's what matters the most."

Nicolas, a standout track performer who is gunning for a state championship in the 100m event, is enjoying a solid senior season so far. In three games, Nicolas has eight receptions for almost 200 yards and two touchdowns.

On the recruiting front, Nicolas continues getting weekly calls from many of the nation's premier programs.

"It's hard to keep up with all of them sometimes," he said. "There are times when I hang up talking to one coach and another one is calling in. I really haven't narrowed it down to a top five yet. Florida, Miami, Florida State, Michigan State, and Louisiana (State) are some (of the programs I'm considering)."

Nicolas, who has not yet scheduled any visits, said he can't pick out a single favorite right now. He did, however, talk more about the Hurricanes.

"They have a great program," he said. "I've been talking to their coach for a little while now. I'm gonna visit them probably. I know how impressive they are in football but I just want to get to know the area and stuff of the schools (on my list). Miami's right there but I'm more focused on my season than recruiting right now."

Nicolas, who plays at the same school that produced Edgerrin James, claims scholarship offers from all of his favorites.
