Nick O'Leary tries out the Florida State gloves.
Nick O'Leary, perhaps the top tight end in the country, has committed to the Florida State Seminoles. O'Leary plays for Palm Beach Dwyer High School and had long favored FSU. He is the grandson of golf-great Jack Nicklaus.
O'Leary stands 6'3" and weighs 235 lbs. Nick does everything on the football field well. He is an excellent blocker for his size. His hands are well above average, making difficult catches regularly. His athleticism is unquestioned (he has scholarship offers for multiple different sports, including lacrosse offers at elite Northeastern schools). He plays the game smart, running precise routes and separating in the seam. Great body control and balance. His agility and low center of gravity help him to get open underneath. O'Leary is a match-up nightmare for opposing defenses. He is too big for a safety and much too quick for a college linebacker. Think Dallas Clark of the Indianapolis Colts. Coach Fisher is delighted to have O'Leary aboard and he will certainly be used in a variety of formations and plays very early in his career.
O'Leary chose Florida State over offers from Florida, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Miami and Ohio State. With the exception of USC and Texas, O'Leary was offered by every major program in the country.
O'Leary is rated as a four-star prospect by all major services and is universally considered one of the top 40 players in the country. He is Florida State's 23rd commitment. The 'Noles currently have the nation's #1 class per ESPN, featuring 11 ESPNU150 players -- the most in the country and more than the rest of the ACC combined.
