Another Contender

This Hudson High School lineman has more offers than he has places to hold them, but he is checking out all the offers that come his way. He added another school to his list of considerations after making a Saturday visit last weekend.

Bill Nagy, who has offers from numerous Big Ten, Big East and ACC schools, took a trip to West Virginia last weekend to check out the Mountaineer program. It was his first visit to the WVU campus, and he liked what he saw.

"It was a great atmosphere," he said of the sold out stadium. "I thought it was a great football place. I got to meet most of the coaches. I like Coach Rodriguez a lot. He seems like a good guy, and it's not just all about football with him. He seems to have his priorities in order."

Nagy has set up three official visits – Boston College (12/3), Syracuse (12/10), and Wisconsin (12/17). A number of schools, including West Virginia, Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Louisville and Ohio State (if they offer) are vying for the last two official visit spots. Nagy values those visits, as they give him a chance to see as much as possible about each program.

"It has been tough to narrow down [my list of schools]," said Nagy, "but you have to look at every option you are presented with. I thought it was important to go and see West Virginia, and see what it was like, because there's nothing like actually going to a place to experience it.

Although Nagy won't begin taking his official visits until December, he still plans to have the recruiting process wrapped up by Christmas. Noting that school and football activities take up too much time for him to devote his attention to officials, he still wants to move quickly once he begins the intense visitation process. To that end, he'll likely get all his visits in before the Christmas holiday, then make his decision fairly quickly after that. Whoever Nagy picks will get a nice early Christmas present in the form of a dominant blocker who gets off the ball well and ties into defenders with aggression. What more could any coach want?
