Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) rising senior Derrick Nnadi , one of the top uncommitted defensive tackle prospects in the nation, is focused on six schools at this point in his college decision-making process. Which schools are at the top of the 6’2″, 305-pound prospect’s list?
“Those schools I was talking about where I really want to take officials to – Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan State, Penn State, and Virginia Tech. And UVa because I haven’t seen all of UVa yet,” Nnadi answered.
