"I prefer linebacker," said Pilon, who uses his speed and strength to pack a wallop.
"I ran the 40 in 4.58 at my high school, and I power cleaned 250 pounds and benched 310."
Nick also plays hoops but it's for football that schools are looking at him.
Pilon was 2nd team all-Border league linebacker last year. "I run well sideline to sideline and I can really give a big hit. I really like to hit people hard. I'm pretty fast," said Pilon.
He enjoys football because of the competition, and describes his play as "crazy. That's the way I play the game."
Idaho Coach Tom Cable has already offered Pilon. "I made a verbal commitment to U of I," said Pilon. "I'm still going to look at other schools. I will take a look at Washington because almost my whole family lives in Seattle."
Not a real solid verbal just yet for the Vandals.
"Washington, Idaho, and Oregon are recruiting the hardest right now," said Pilon.
The Huskies will offer a trip to the linebacker from Couer D'Alene. It will be interesting to see what happens when he returns from that visit.
