High School: Osceola (FL) High School
NOTES: Nicholson recorded 100 tackles, 58 solo, 17 tackles for loss, six forced fumbles and five pass-breakups during his junior season. He played strongside linebacker and will play middle this year for Osceola. Where did NC State recruit him to play?
"I'll be playing weakside linebacker at NC State," he said. "I believe they are losing two this year so I can compete right away."
He picked the Wolfpack after considering offers from West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Purdue, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Indiana, Minnesota, Rutgers, Wake Forest, South Florida, and Central Florida among others.
"I liked how the coaches treated me and how the players treated me when I was on my visits," said Nicholson. "Plus, they are in the ACC, so I'll get to play some great competition. I also liked the campus... it was like home, at least it felt that way."
