Immediate Impact Safety

Nicholas Law is a talented safety from Maryland who is already holding 11 written scholarship offers and when he visited Syracuse for the recent spring game, it was immediately clear to him that he could impact the defensive secondary from day one if he were to give a verbal commitment to the Orange.

Nicholas Law, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound safety from Bishop McNamara High School in Forestville, Md., took a trip to Syracuse to check out their spring game with some teammates in April and was blown away by what the program had to offer.

"I went to Syracuse a couple of weeks ago with my coach and three of my teammates and saw their spring game and I've never seen a stadium like the Carrier Dome as it was beautiful," Law said. "I kicked it with Antwon Bailey who told me what it was like living the college life. He said it was like having another family and he said there were a ton of Syracuse fans up in New York, so I liked it a lot up there."

"I liked the players a lot because they were a big family and they reminded me of my team. They were goofy like my boys are down here and I could relate to them right away. The coaches were nice too. They treated me like I was one of their biggest prospects and they told me they really needed impact safeties and when I watched them play I really felt like I could come in immediately and make a big difference for Syracuse on defense."

"I'm going to start taking visits in the summer because I'm too busy with school now, but I want to visit Syracuse again," Law explained. Right now I have offers from Syracuse, Cincinnati, Purdue, Michigan State, Illinois, Maryland, West Virginia, Rutgers, North Carolina State, Louisville and Iowa. I'm going to have to figure out who all I'm going to visit this summer."

As a junior, Law registered 67 tackles, sacked the quarterback four times, forced two fumbles and returned an interception 80 yards for a touchdown.
