Interest in Lifka on the Rise

Naperville (IL) LB Nick Lifka was among the recruits that made his way to Ann Arbor for Michigan's "Night of Champions" recently, and now the Wolverines are among his favorites. He chatted with GoBlueWolverine recently about his Michigan visit, his recruitment, his Michigan visit, decision timeline, and more.


Sam Webb:  Anything in particular that you could point out as most memorable about your time on campus?

Nick Lifka:  "Contact between Michigan and myself had not been really strong.  It was just kind of lately that have really started getting a lot of mail in and invited me to junior day.  Junior day was fun.  I got to meet a lot of the coaches and got to see the facilities.  It was the first time I went to the University of Michigan.  I was really impressed by…I did not know how the tradition there and stuff.  I never really looked into Michigan football intently and I liked what I saw.  The coaches there seemed like a good group of guys.  I did not think that they would even really know my name when I got there, but the defensive coordinator knew me and we had a good conversation and it was a nice visit overall."

Sam Webb:  Anything in particular that you could point out as most memorable about your time on campus?

Nick Lifka:  "I have two cousins that go there.  After I had the whole junior day, I stayed with my cousins and just kind of hung out and it was a great time.  I have to say that I like the student body.  They are a good group of people."

Sam Webb:  Did they talk to you how you might fit into their scheme, would it be middle linebacker, outside, where would they look at you?

Nick Lifka:  "I actually did not really get too much of a feel for that, but I'm pretty sure that they are looking at me as an inside linebacker."

Sam Webb:  Do you have a top list of schools right now?

Nick Lifka:  "Top list of school – LSU, Indiana, Notre Dame, Michigan and Iowa, Wisconsin."

Sam Webb:  Have any of those schools offered you?

Nick Lifka:  "Indiana and LSU."

Sam Webb:  Is that your complete offer list right now?

Nick Lifka:  "Western Michigan, Eastern Illinois and Ball State have too."

Sam Webb:  So you said that you really did not grow up with a major interest for Michigan; What schools did you grow up with an interest in?

Nick Lifka:  "I'm not really biased towards many groups.  Like the only one that I kind of grew up with was Notre Dame, that's because two of my uncles went there.  It wasn't nothing too crazy.  I've always just kind of rooted for the underdog when I watched college football.  I've never really had a favorite."

Sam Webb:  Have you heard anything from Notre Dame so far?

Nick Lifka:  "I actually went to their junior day and they were really interested, but they got a lot of offers out right now and I do not think I'm going to be able to fit into their new defensive scheme.  That's what I'm thinking. I had been to their camp over the summer.  I know it is a whole new coaching staff and stuff.  I probably might go out there so they can see me physically doing plays and stuff.  They have invited me but I had a busy schedule – we'll see."

Sam Webb:  I know that LSU was one of the schools that offered you…but are there any schools closer to home that are really on you kind of hard that your kind of interested in?

Nick Lifka:  "I know Wisconsin lately has kind of been interested because they run that whole fullback thing and when they saw LSU offer as a fullback, I think they took a second look at me.  That could turn it up at Wisconsin.  I was interested in Northwestern, but I think they said it was a bad time and I do not fit into their scheme or anything.  Really in the area there is not that much going on.  I know Illinois is pretty interested but really that's it.  It's been really new there.  It's kind of interesting, Illinois just started calling me a lot and it was just out of the blue.  I do not know if it was just interest in my right away."

Sam Webb:  With LSU, I'm curious as to what the connection is there?   Have you been there before; do you have any ties there.   How did you and LSU make sort of the connection that you guys made recently?

Nick Lifka:  "I know when I first started the recruiting process I got a recruiting group that helps me out and they sent out emails and films to a whole bunch of schools and I know LSU was one of them.  After that LSU always kind of sent me mail and stuff.  I did not think they were real serious, because I never really heard of them recruiting anybody all the way up into Illinois.  I thought I'm on the mail list because I sent an email to them.  Really I think they checked out my film and they saw something that they really liked.  I actually lived in the south for two to three years down in Memphis and I had gone to two games at LSU.  I kind of get the atmosphere there that it is real crazy and I'm really excited to go down there for spring break.  My parents know a lot of people at LSU.  My dad has a lot of connections there – a lot of people down in LSU so that is cool."

Sam Webb:  As far as your process goes are you going to be taking any other visits besides the one to LSU during the spring and do you have a timeline for how you want your recruiting process to go, narrowing down your list and making a decision that kind of thing?

Nick Lifka:  "I do not have a timeline.  I'm just kind of going down and if I ever feel like it is the right time, I'll do it and if not, I'll hold off.  As far as spring visits, I know for spring break, which is the week before Easter, I'm going to see LSU, Indiana and I'm going to see BC (Boston College)."

Sam Webb:  Any plan at all maybe not this spring but over the summer or during the fall to either camp at or visit Michigan again?

Nick Lifka:  "I'll probably go out to a camp at Michigan to get a feel for the campus a little more and see the coaches."

Sam Webb:  When you get ready to make that decision, what are going to be the most significant factors in that choice?

Nick Lifka:  "I'd have to say academics and team chemistry.  I want to have good coaches and good players.  I do not want a whole bunch of prima donnas and stuff because these guys are going to end up being my friends and student body.  I just want to have a good set of people there."
