Junior Demetrious Nicholson is now up to five official scholarship offers, including one from Virginia Tech, which offered the Bayside (Virginia Beach, VA) cornerback/wide receiver almost three weeks ago. The 5-9, 165-pound cornerback/wide receiver is open to any school that wants to offer, but he is high on Virginia Tech and one other ACC school at the moment.
“I really like Tech and North Carolina,” Nicholson said.
Nicholson attended summer camps at UNC and Virginia Tech. UNC was the first school to officially offer a scholarship – a reason why Nicholson likes the Tar Heels so much – while Tech was a childhood favorite of the Virginia Beach speedster.
“I like Tech. I’ve always liked Tech since I was little,” Nicholson said.
Led by primary recruiter Curt Newsome, the Virginia Tech coaches have done a good job of showing interest.
“Coach Newsome’s really interested in me,” Nicholson said. “Him and Coach Gray have both been at my school. Coach Newsome has been telling me I’m going to be a Hokie. He’s trying to convince me to go there.”
Tech and UNC may be in good position right now, but Nicholson isn’t in a rush to commit and plans to take a close look at other programs.
“I don’t have one school I’m looking at the most and I’m ready to commit to,” Nicholson said. “I’m waiting to start going on visits. I plan to take visits throughout the school year. I’m trying to commit before the season starts next year, so I can focus more on the season.”
With his junior season complete, Nicholson, who also boasts offers from Duke, N.C. State and Stanford, is now focused on preparing for offseason camps and combines.
“I’m not looking forward to the recruiting process too much because I know it’s stressful, but I am going to go to some camps to try and get my stars up,” Nicholson said. “On January 7th, I’m going to San Antonio for the Army All-American Combine. I’m also trying to go to the 5-Star Camp in Charlotte. And I’m going back to Rutgers for the National 7-on-7 tournament.”
Helped by Nicholson, who started on both sides of the ball, Bayside turned in a 10-2 record this season and captured a Beach District championship. The Marlins season came...
