6-6, 285-pound Stone Bridge (Ashburn, VA) offensive line recruit Andrew Nuss has had a busy spring off the field in efforts to have a decision made before the start of his senior season. With his scholarship offer number continuing to grow, it’s a decision that seems to be getting tougher and tougher.
“Yes, I will,” Nuss replied when asked if he still planned on deciding in the summer. “It’s definitely going to be in the summer. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to do it because I haven’t thought about it. It’s just overwhelming right now.”
Nuss is currently working hard to attain a qualifying standardized test score, which is what he’s been working towards this spring. He took the SAT last Saturday and will take the ACT this Saturday.
“Academics have been my focus,” Nuss said.
But Nuss, who has official scholarship offers from Duke, Georgia, Maryland, N.C. State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, has also made one spring practice visit and plans on two more.
“I went to West Virginia’s practice,” Nuss said. “I saw the offensive line coach, Rick Trickett, and he’s a real fiery guy. He’s a real intense guy but he produces some good offensive lineman. For a practice, it was really intense.
“This Saturday, after my ACT, I’m going to go to UVa. And then I’m going to go to the Tech scrimmage.”
Georgia and N.C. State, Nuss’ newest offers, have joined Nuss’ previous top five in his group of favorites. His previous top five consisted of Virginia Tech, West Virginia, UVa, Miami and Maryland.
“I still have a group, pretty much,” Nuss said. “It’s the same group as last time, but with Georgia and N.C. State.”
What has the contact been like from Virginia and Virginia Tech?
“I have contact basically with UVa on a regular basis, like daily,” Nuss said. “And then Tech pretty much everyday too with coach Gray. With UVa, I talk to coach Garrett and actually a lot of the other coaches too. Coach Garrett and coach Gray are both great guys.”
Nuss’ visit to UVa this weekend will be his third overall, while his trip to Virginia Tech next weekend will be his first. He feels both programs have a lot to offer.
“I think Virginia Tech and Virginia are both great schools,” Nuss said. “You can’t go wrong either way.”
