Kellam (Virginia Beach, VA) tight end landed an offer from Virginia Tech back in February and he had to wait a while for the next one to come in. But now, four more Division 1A programs – including the University of Virginia – have extended official scholarship offers to the 6-7, 255-pound standout.

“Virginia came in with the offer about three weeks ago,” Nosal said. “I think they want me as a tight end, but they have been talking about moving me to defense too.

“Virginia, Akron, Connecticut, Marshall and ECU are the new offers.”

Nosal gave his thoughts on the offer from UVa.

“It’s just a great academic school,” Nosal said. “I could always go farther in life with a degree from Virginia. You always have to keep that in mind.”

Both Virginia and Virginia Tech have landed recent visits from Nosal, who seemed to enjoy both experiences.

“I went to the spring games at both Virginia Tech and Virginia,” Nosal said. “The Virginia Tech spring game was incredible. There were about 38,000 fans for the spring game. They are just so into football there. I was thrown back by that.

“It was a little rainy at Virginia, but I still had fun. I had a chance to talk to the coaches there. It was a whole different feel than Virginia Tech.”

Nosal says he has followed Tech more in the past and, at this point, he has the Hokies as his favorite.

“I think Virginia Tech is ahead, but I’m still wide open,” Nosal said. “They’ve made a great relationship with me. They offered real early and I’ve been talking with the coaches a lot. That helped a lot. I’ve just had a great experience meeting with all of them.”

This summer, the Kellam star plans on making several unofficial visits including several camps (Kellam goes to a team camp at James Madison). Additional visits to Virginia Tech and Virginia are a given, and he wants to attend camp at the University of Florida as well. The Gators have not offered but have expressed serious interest.

These visits will help Nosal as he plans to make a decision this summer.

“I’ll know definitely where I want to go before the season starts,” Nosal said. “Maybe in August. We’ll have to see how everything works out.”

A good athlete, Nosal is currently playing AAU basketball and his team just won an AAU tournament. On the gridiron, he plays tight
