Nicholls Likes What Gamecocks Have To Offer
Nicholls, who weighs in at an imposing 6'2 and 290 pounds, enjoyed his time at South Carolina and said the USC coaches and players showed him a good time.
"It went well, it went real nice," said Nicholls. "I met with the coaches, the strength coach, and I met with a few of the players and stuff like that. They showed me a good time."
When asked to grade his visit on a scale between one and ten, the 3-star rated prospect gave the following response.
"Considering this was my first visit, I'd rate it about a ‘9'."
One factor that Nicholls likes about South Carolina is the possibility for early playing if he comes in and works hard.
"I talked to the defensive coordinator and the defensive line coach. They pretty much told me the same thing. They say that they're recruiting me pretty heavily because they need some defensive tackles. If I come in with a good work ethic and put in some time, I might be a candidate for one of those positions."
The Gamecocks certainly helped their chances with Nicholls after this weekend, and the defensive stalwart went on record naming a top three shortly after his visit concluded.
"I'm very interested in South Carolina. Recruiting wise, it's been South Carolina, Rutgers, and West Virginia pretty heavily."
Lastly, Nicholls said that a decision could potentially come within the next month.
"I'll probably make (my decision) in early January or late December."
