Nunez set to be a Blue Raider

In mid-December, Hartnell OL Nick Nunez (6-4, 290) signed with Middle Tennessee, but because of a missing class, he needed to return, but he told that he still plans to become a Blue Raider, albeit, a little later than he'd hoped...

"I signed with Middle Tennessee, but there was a problem with my transcript and I guess I had a class that wouldn't transfer over, so I had to come back and finish that up before I could go there," Nunez told recently. "I took a visit in November and I could just tell that it was the right place for me and that I would fit in great there.

"Their fans love football and it was a great atmosphere when I was there."

In addition to his offer from Middle Tennessee, Nunez still has been hearing from schools like Idaho and Sacramento State who like what he brings to table.

"I feel like I can run or pass-block well and I love to get after it," Nunez said. "My footwork is good and I feel like I can play inside at guard or outside. It really doesn't matter to me."

After struggling in the past to even get to .500, Hartnell had a great season, finishing 8-3 including a win over Solano in the Living Breath Foundation Bowl and Nunez, along with the rest of his linemates, were a big reason why.

"We had a great season," Nunez said. "It was a lot of fun for us. We all worked hard and we had a great group of sophomores this year.

"Our coaches also were great. They had us ready to go and our line played really well down the stretch which really felt good."

Nunez plans to finish up his class this semester and will enroll at Middle Tennessee in June where he will have three years to play two when he arrives.
