You cannot describe Derek Nicholson talents in words. Nicholson is a phenomenal athlete, who has everything you would want in a player. Nicholson still has not set any favorites for his services.

"I still really don't have a top ten. I am focusing on my season, and going to some games to see where I feel the best."

Nicholson may not have a favorite, but the Tigers appear to be in good position. Nicholson has only taken three unofficial visits one to Clemson, then to FSU and Virginia Tech.

"I have been to Clemson, FSU, and Virginia Tech. I was at the FSU-Virginia game, and I saw them play against Wake Forest. It was good to see my brother and watch him play again. I will go to UNC this weekend for the game against Miami."

Nicholson has anchored a Mount Tabor defense to a 9-0 start.

"I am not sure of my personal numbers, but most importantly we are undefeated. The playoffs start in two weeks, and we are in pretty good shape for a conference title."

It will likely be after the playoffs before Nicholson narrows down to a top five. The Tigers could be a good position to get an official visits, but it appears the Seminoles may be the early team to beat.
