Marist’s Nic Weishar going slow on recruiting

SHARE Marist’s Nic Weishar going slow on recruiting

Expecting some big news anytime soon from Nic Weishar?

Don’t hold your breath, the Marist two-sport standout says.

“I’m not in any rush,” Weishar said of his football recruiting, which has been heating up. “I’m just going to see which school is best for me, just going to keep learning about each program and get out to more visits.

“But I’m not going to be in any hurry to make a decision.”

Weishar is coming off a breakout sophomore year for the pass-happy RedHawks during which he had 78 catches for 1,160 yards and 13 touchdowns. He followed that up by averaging 13.5 points and 8.1 rebounds for a Marist basketball team that went on a memorable postseason run en route to a 23-7 finish.

With quarterback Ian Woodworth also returning from a team that was 7-3 and made the Class 8A playoffs, those football stats could be even better this fall.

But those aren’t the only numbers college coaches like about Weishar. They also appreciate his 6-foot-5, 200-pound frame. That’s why most of the Big Ten has offered him, along with Notre Dame and Vanderbilt.

“He’s one of the top five kids in the state,” CBS College Sports recruiting analyst Tom Lemming said. “He runs well, he plays in a great offense. He’s got a Division I body, attitude and hands.”
