All this traveling is in an effort to assist Nicholson in his narrowing down process. By the end of July the 6-foot-1, 288-pound All-State selection would like to have established his top five. At this point, however, Nicholson is completely open.
Like all other blue chip prospects, Nicholson needs a receptionist to field the countless phone calls he receives on a nightly basis from college coaches vying for his services.
"I'm starting to get a lot of phone calls," remarked Nicholson. "They are telling me, of course, how they want me, how I will fit into the scheme of things, what defense they play, and what position I would play in their defense. They get more in-depth on how I would fit into their program, at this stage where there program is at that particular time, and just stay like how my spring has been going and how I have been winding down the season."
South Carolina and Miami are among the most recent of Nicholson's offers. He expects the flow of offers to slow down as virtually all east coast schools have tendered the defensive playmaker.
