Rising Sunshine State OL on Michigan’s Radar

One of the stops on Michigan Offensive Coordinator Tim Drevno’s agenda earlier this week was at Navarre (Fla.) High School to see their rising offensive lineman prospect, Nick Brahms.

One of the fastest rising prospects in the country is Navarre (Fla.) junior offensive guard Nick Brahms. The Sunshine State standout only held a few offers in March, but now sits with over double digit offers and after an impressive showing at The Opening New Orleans Regional, he earned an invite to The Opening Finals in Beaverton, Oregon.

That has grabbed the attention of many programs including the Wolverines, who had offensive coordinator Tim Drevno head down on Wednesday to check him out.

“Coach Drevno came by the school (Wednesday),” Brahms told The Michigan Insider. “It is a long way to come down to Florida from there. I was not so much shocked, but excited.”


This was 6-5, 280-pounder’s first encounter with Drevno, but hopes to continue to strengthen their relationship moving forward.

“I'm going to build a relationship with Coach Drevno and go from there,” said Brahms.

The Scout 300 prospect, who ranks as one of the top interior offensive linemen in the country, has yet to land an offer from Michigan, but that hasn’t stopped his interest in the Maize and Blue.

“Absolutely (I’m interested),” said Brahms. “Michigan would be a top school for me. The serious world class academics and the success they've had with Coach Harbaugh these past few years is huge. They are truly the best of both worlds and I was very excited to get in touch with Coach Drevno.”

If an offer does comes for Brahms, he will look to check out Ann Arbor.

”I will go visit if I get the offer because I've heard it's beautiful up there and the facilities are amazing,” said Brahms.
