While Illinois was likely his leader going into FNL, I spoke with Nile afterwards, and I have a very strong feeling that has since changed.

DE Nile Sykes high on Illini, OSU, UW - OSU Buckeyes Blog - ESPN

Quote:
Oak Park and River Forest (Ill.) High School is off to a 3-1 start, and one of its best players has yet to play. It will face its toughest test yet Saturday against Glenbard West, and it looks like Nile Sykes (Oak Park, Ill./Oak Park-River Forest) should be able to play.

“I’ve been out with my ankle,” the 2014 defensive end said. “I hurt it in a scrimmage, but I’m back to practice this coming week. I’m going to see how I feel come Saturday.”

Sykes is coming off a visit to Michigan State this past weekend, and he is one of the Chicago area’s top 2014 prospects. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Sykes has offers from Illinois, Northern Illinois, Purdue and Toledo.

Default 14 IL LB/DE- NILE SYKES

ESPN

Quote:
It was a busy week for 2014 prospect Nile Sykes (Oak Park, Ill./Oak Park-River Forest), who made two visits to Midwest programs.

The more recent of the two trips came Saturday to Wisconsin, which he was seeing for a second time.

“It was good. The whole game was exciting,” Sykes said.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Sykes could play more linebacker as a senior and eventually in college, and he spoke with Badgers linebackers coach Andy Buh. Area recruiter and co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash also talked with Sykes.

“Both just asked me how I was doing and thanked me for coming,” Sykes said. “Coach Ash said that he would be down to my school soon.”

Even though the Badgers lost, Sykes saw some things he liked.

“I like that they never quit and played hard on every down,” Sykes said. “Also, their fans are some of the best I’ve seen.”

During the week, Sykes made a visit to nearby Northern Illinois.

“It was great, an awesome game,” Sykes said. “I can tell they put in a lot of work.”

His next visit will go to Ohio State for the Michigan game Nov. 24, and Sykes is impressed with the 11-0 Buckeyes.

“I think they are a really well-coached team and they have a bunch of playmakers,” he said. “It’s unfortunate that they are bowl-ineligible.”
