Walter Nolen is one of the nation's premier prospects regardless of position. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound defensive line prospect from Cordova (Tenn.) has over 25 Division 1 offers, and he has heard from a who's who in the college football world. Friday, Nolen released his trimmed list of schools to eight.
Alabama, Georgia, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon and USC have made the cut for Nolen.
A native of Tennessee, Georgia has made a serious push as of late for Nolen. He shared his thoughts on why Georgia made the list with Matt Ray of VR2 on SI.com:
"It is just like once I dropped my top 10, they picked it up a lot. They have picked up the speed, and now, I am talking to them every day, and just being able to get on zooms and get on the board with them has been pretty good and just showing me how they would use me on the defensive line and stuff. After the UA camp, we drove to Athens and drove around the campus for a bit. It was pretty good, even though I couldn't get in contact with coaches and stuff. It was still good to be able to ride around campus and see it."
He has official visits scheduled for Florida (June 4-6) and Michigan (June 18-20), while others are still to be determined. The decision timeline is still late in 2021, around the New Year or an All-American game.
