Bayside (Virginia Beach, VA) speedster Demetrious Nicholson is becoming one of the most highly recruited juniors in the state. The 5-9, 165-pound prospect, a first-team all-Beach district selection at cornerback and wide receiver and first-team all-Tidewater selection on defense, has the potential to be a lockdown cornerback on the college level. He has received seven FBS scholarship offers so far, with the most recent one coming yesterday.
“UVa sent an offer [yesterday],” Nicholson said. “Another new one is Maryland. I haven’t received an official letter from Maryland yet, but I received an e-mail recently saying congratulations on being offered.”
Nicholson attended camps at UNC and Virginia Tech last summer and would eventually earn official offers from both programs.

I’m supposed to go to Tech on the 27th [of February], but there is a 7-on-7 National Skills Camp at Rutgers on that day. I said I’d play in it, so we’ll see.”
In a December interview, Nicholson stated that he liked North Carolina and Virginia Tech. He has been impressed by those two schools but didn’t name any favorites this time around.
“No school really has the edge on me right now. It seems as though all of them are telling me the same thing. I need to see the schools,” said Nicholson, who adds that he would like to take official visits but is not ruling out a commitment before the start of his senior...
