Myles Nash Opens Recruiting Up

Timber Creek WR Myles Nash

Early last month, 2013 wide receiver Myles Nash out of New Jersey proclaimed that Rutgers was the early favorite in his recruitment, thanks in large part to the fact that the Scarlet Knights secured a commitment from his teammate, Quanzell Lambert. Things have changed and Nash is now more wide open.

Since the time of Myles Nash's statement, Greg Schiano has left Rutgers to become the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now that Coach Schiano is no longer in Piscataway, is Nash looking at the recruiting process differently?

"Definitely," Nash responded to that exact question. "When you visit a school one of the things you fall in love with is the staff. You don't really fall in love with a building. I had already established a great relationship with him, so it was kind of disappointing. Right now, I have no favorites and I'm just taking the process slowly."

It is a good thing that Nash is open to everyone in the recruiting process, because he currently has offers from four schools: Boston College, Purdue, Kentucky and Rutgers.

In addition to his four FBS offers, Nash also talks regularly with coaches from more than a dozen other major programs.

One of the coaches Nash speaks with the most is Georgia Tech's Joe Speed, who stays after him about making a trip to Atlanta.

"We talk about it all the time. When it comes down to the time for those things to go down, I just need to see what me and my parents are financially capable of doing. When you make those long trips, you want to make sure that it is something serious."

Despite playing his high school football far away from the state of Georgia, Nash is fairly knowledgeable about Georgia Tech and their use of wide receivers.

"Calvin Johnson went there, and they like pretty big receivers and that's what I am. They want me to come down to camp and play receiver. Overall, they are a great school and a great program and they produce good players."

Distance does not appear to be a factor in Nash's decision, which should work in Tech's favor. However, in order to win his services, the Yellow Jackets will have to prove that they offer the best overall opportunity for Nash.

"I want to be somewhere that is the best possible fit for me. It's not just how good they are in football. I'm going to look at their academic progress rates and how kids succeed at their university."

Nash also says that the positional situation at the school will play a large part in his decision. He could end up playing a number of positions at the collegiate level, so he will have to look at each school on a case-by-case basis, depending on where they would want him to start out. At this time, Georgia Tech has made it clear that they are recruiting him as a wide receiver.
