"I have offers from Syracuse, Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Toledo." Rory Nicol said.
Nicol, a 6-foot-5, 240-pounder, from Beaver (Pa.) Area will be a three-year varsity starter in 2003. Beaver head coach Jeff Beltz feels he has one of the best prospects in the state.
"There are a lot of good football players in Pennsylvania," Beltz said. "Dan Connor (Strath Haven), Chad Henne (West Lawn), Anthony Morrelli (Penn Hills)and A.Q. Shipley (Moon) are all talented kids and I'd put Rory (Nicol) in their class.
"Rory is a big, athletic football player that also runs hurdles in track. He could play on either side of the ball at the next level but I see him playing tight end."
Does Nicol have a leader at this point in his recruitment?
"I grew up loving Florida State and I also like Penn State, Ohio State, Pittsburgh and Syracuse. I wouldn't say I have a leader right now.
"I went to Pittsburgh last weekend for a visit. My mom is a Pitt graduate. I'm going to West Virginia this weekend and I'm going to Ohio State to check out a spring practice.
"The Penn State coaches said they'll be in to see me at the end of April. I don't have any summer plans right now. We do a lot of team stuff in the summer."
Nicol also plays basketball and says he'll be attending the Penn State Nike Camp.
