Schwarzkopf schedules two visits

Chamblee (Ga) - Interest continues to build for Chamblee High tight end Nicolai Schwarzkopf. The two-star prospect has picked up two more offers giving him a total of seven altogether. Schwarzkopf recently gave John Marchant a few minutes of his time to discuss recruiting.

Most schools were waiting to see how Nicolai Schwarzkopf performed during his senior season before offering. He finished with 11 catches for 249 yards and 4 touchdowns in Chamblee's run oriented offense. As soon as the first offer arrived, others started trickling in as well.

"Kentucky, South Florida, UAB, Navy, Air Force, Columbia, and Harvard have offered me," said Schwarzkopf.

The 6-foot-4, 224-pounder is still pondering a decision about his commitment. He plans to utilize all of his official visits before deciding.

"I've set up two visits to Kentucky and Harvard in the first week and the second week of December," Schwarzkopf said. "I'm also going to take some more in January before I make my final decision. It will most likely be South Florida and probably the Naval Academy in January."

Schwarzkopf is primarily being recruited as a tight end, but some schools prefer him on the defensive side of the ball.

"I know I can play at both positions," Schwarzkopf said. "I'm getting recruited mostly at tight end. The Naval Academy is actually looking at me as a defensive end and possibly at wide receiver."

On the season, Schwarzkopf led the Chamblee Bulldogs to a very respectable (8-2) record. Remarkably, because of the Region 5-AAA seeding format, the Bulldogs were not eligible for the playoffs.

"It's very disappointing," he said. "We only lost by one point in a crucial game against Grady. We feel like we definitely deserve to go to the playoffs. I think we would still be in there if we could have got in."

The Bulldogs' only defeats were to Region 5B-AAA opponents Dunwoody (5-2) and Grady (6-2) by a combined four points.
