This weekend will be an important one in the recruitment of Stone Bridge (Ashburn, VA) offensive line recruit Andrew Nuss . The 6-6, 285-pound will head to Notre Dame later this week for a one-day camp/combine event and could hear soon as to whether or not the Irish will extend a scholarship offer.

Nuss gave his thoughts on three of the four top programs – Georgia, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

Georgia…

“I thought it was really nice,” Nuss said of his first and only visit so far to Georgia. “To me, the campus was really nice with all the old trees. It’s really filled in nice. Size doesn’t really matter to me, but my parents thought it was really big and spread out. That doesn’t really matter to me.”

Virginia…

“UVa is definitely one of my top choices with group I’ve already said,” said Nuss, who has visited UVa four times. “A lot of the coaches – about five of them – came on the first day [of the May evaluation period]. The next week they came with a couple other guys. I know how much they want me, and
