Hudson, Ohio, two-way lineman Bill Nagy is a strong contender to be considered as one of the state's top 10 prospects for the Class of 2006.

Nagy (6-5, 285, 4.9) has been a starter at offensive guard and defensive tackle for two years at Hudson, helping the Explorers reach the Division I playoffs each of the past two years and post records of 9-2 and 8-3.

As a junior, Nagy had 52 tackles, two sacks, five quarterback pressures and eight tackles-for-loss. He could play either side of the ball at the college level.

"Most schools are looking at my on offense," Nagy said. "I think I get off the ball real quick and I'm mobile. I am able to pull and do a good job of getting into the second level."

Nagy has already made unofficial visits to Notre Dame, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Penn State, Northwestern and Bowling Green. Northwestern has already offered Nagy, who holds a 3.4 GPA and will take college entrance exams in the spring.

"Northwestern is in the Big Ten and it's a great school," he said.

Nagy plans to come down to Ohio State for spring practice.

"I have been invited down for spring practice," he said. "I talked to their offensive line coach (Jim Bollman) last week.

"I have been an Ohio State fan since I was little and I have always followed them. It's always been a dream of mine to play for them. I have not been down to their facilities, but I am looking forward to going down there."

Nagy, who benches 340 pounds, has been invited to participate in the Nike Camp. He will also attend an adidas Camp May 14 in Pittsburgh.

"This summer, I will be at Ohio State's camp with my team," he said. "I have been invited to numerous places for camp. I will probably go to Michigan and Notre Dame and all of the schools that are interested in me.

"If I had to say a top five now, it would probably be Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Northwestern and Louisville."
