After previously taking visits to the campuses of Ball State, Ohio, Toledo, and Western Michigan, Olentangy Liberty (OH) class of 2016 offensive lineman Nate Brock finally had the chance to make it down to Oxford to recently see what the Miami RedHawks are working with.
"I had the opportunity to visit Miami for their (January 31) junior day. It was awesome. The campus was incredible, and I was especially impressed with the farmer school of business. I was also able to be one of the first to check out the new indoor facilities, and they were very impressive." Brock stated to Hustle Belt.
During his time at Miami, Brock had the chance to chat with head coach Chuck Martin, and catch back up with RedHawk offensive line coach George Barnett.
"I had the opportunity to talk to Coach Martin, and talk with Coach Barnett a lot. After Coach Barnett stopped by my school to talk to me, along with on my visit, I think we are developing a good relationship. Miami is a program that is headed in the right direction, and I'll be excited to keep in touch with them here in the near future."
The 6-foot-4, 270-pound junior, who is focusing on bettering not just his game, but also his 3.1 grade point average, and 25 ACT score, will be a busy man over the next couple of weeks. Brock has plans to visit Eastern Michigan on the 14th, and will once again Row The Boat at Western Michigan on the 21st.
"I'm heading up to Eastern Michigan for the first time, and I'm excited to check that out. Then the weekend after on the 21st, I will be at Western Michigan again. I've been in continuous contact with Coach (Rob) Wenger, and Coach (Brian) Callahan. I'm happy to head back up there.
Yet to receive an offer, the under-the-radar lineman is starting to hear from a long list of schools. With interest coming in, it should only be a matter of time before Nate adds a scholarship under his belt.
"It's been a really busy few weeks with many coaches stopping by the school to talk, and trying to plan visits. Overall I've been in contact with Miami, Toledo, Bowling Green, Western Michigan, Ball State, Ohio University, Eastern Michigan, Indiana State, and also Cornell just a little. This has been a very exciting time, and I'm just going to keep working as hard as possible."
