Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas offensive lineman and Cane commit Nick Linder is only a couple days away from signing his letter of intent to play football at the University of Miami.
"I'm excited to get it done with," Linder said. "I'll sign Wednesday morning."
The 3-star recruit had a successful senior season despite St. Thomas Aquinas coming up short in their attempt at repeating as state champions. A few weeks before the Under Armour All-America game, a surprised Linder found out he was invited to participate in the annual game.
"It was such an amazing experience to go against the best of the best," Linder said. "It's a great indication of what I'm going to be going against for the next 4 years."
Linder also chimed in on what his older brother Brandon Linder has told him about his time at Miami, and what to make sure he does.
"He had an amazing experience at Miami," Linder said. "He loved everything about it and the whole dynamic of what the U had to offer." What advice has Nick received from his brother? "Nothing in particular just to always be on time and do your job to the fullest," Linder said.
Miami has hit some recruiting woes in the last few weeks, but that has not changed Linder's mind on the caliber of the 2014 class. "I think we've got a great class from the start and [we]continue to show that we have one of the best in the country," Linder said.
In the final days leading up to national signing day, Miami has done all it can to convince recruits that Miami is the place for them.
Will Miami add a few recruits to it's class on Wednesday? "Not sure, but I definitely hope so," Linder said.
