Sabre Scoop: Nnadi Sets Final Official

In this latest edition of “Sabre Scoop,” a 4-star defensive tackle prospect has scheduled an official visit to the University of Virginia and a Cavalier quarterback recruit recently received some good news on the academic front. We’ll start this “Scoop” with the news on the defensive tackle, Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) senior Derrick Nnadi.

Derrick Nnadi is currently in San Antonio, Texas, preparing for the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, which takes place this Saturday, January 4, at 1 pm EST (broadcast live on NBC). The 6’2”, 300-pound senior will soon take to the recruiting trail once again, though, and he has three official visits on tap before National Signing Day arrives on February 5.

Each high school senior prospect is allowed five official visits. Nnadi has taken two – one to Penn State and another to Florida State – and is scheduled to go to Ohio State (January 17-19), Virginia Tech (January 24-26), and UVa (January 31-February 2). FSU, OSU, PSU, and Virginia Tech have been Nnadi’s top four for the past few months. Virginia has trailed those four schools but appears set to get a look, fighting off a hard charge from Tennessee for that fifth official spot.
