Scout.com three-star linebacker Riley Nicholson used his time away from the Sunshine State to his benefit. The coveted prospect took advantage of his time north, visiting a handful of potential college destinations.
"The visit went great," Nicholson said. "I really enjoyed it in Morgantown. The place is beautiful."
The 6-foot, 220-pound Nicholson received an offer from the Mountaineers in late March, and quickly labeled it a "special offer."
Fresh off his initial visit to West Virginia, Nicholson believes it's a place he could call home.
"It's definitely a place I could see myself playing at," Nicholson said. "It was a great experience."
Nicholson is a thick prospect that moves fluidly and excels both sideline to sideline and powering through the gaps along the line of scrimmage. Physically, he has tons of upside and has a frame built for the next level.
As a junior, Nicholson recorded 100 tackles, 58 solo, 17 tackles for loss, six forced fumbles and five pass-breakups.
He plans to announce his commitment this summer, though a definitive date has yet to be finalized.
