Creekview rising senior Nick Pendley has had a very active offseason. During winter break, he was playing in the GACA All-Star game, in January he received several offseason accolades including All-County, and in February he took a visit to Miami of Ohio.
The month of March has been even more hectic, and just last week on the 12th, Pendley visited Wofford, and received his first college scholarship during the campus tour. Last weekend, he was over at Memphis with his teammate John Williams and also ran into Mathew Willbanks from Centennial.
The gargantuan 6’5″ 295-pound offensive lineman visits do not stop, in fact, they are just beginning. The All-State honorable mention offensive lineman on our site has planned visits to Troy, Tennessee Tech, Clemson, South Carolina, Memphis, Tulane and Kennesaw State. He also on Power 5 schools radars (rightfully so) and has recent summer camp invites to Miss State and Arkansas.
Pendley just got done with the MVP Camp on Sunday, and his focus now is towards the Erik Richards Camp in May. Richards of course is the National Recruiting Director for the Army All-American game, and the event will surely have some of the best talent the region has to offer.
Pendley is a quality recruit, and one of the best offensive lineman in the state of Georgia. He thinks his strengths can help out a college at a very high level.
“My biggest strength is that I am a finisher! I never stop blocking until the whistle blows! I never want my guy to make a tackle. I like to pitch shutouts – that’s when I know I’ve done my job,” Pendley said emphatically.
Still, the 2019 offensive lineman know’s his limitations, and where he needs to improve.
“The thing I need to work on the most is just overall speed. I have worked hard on my footwork and it has come a long way since my sophomore season but I always want to be faster!”
The “Contact Period” starts on April 15th, and we expect the big 2019 offensive lineman to receive ample college attention. He is extremely motivated to excel at the next level, that’s evident in the improvement we have seen from sophomore to junior year, especially from an athletic stand point. We would not be surprised to see more Power 5 colleges to invite him out this summer and see how he performs. No matter what, we expect Nick Pendley to be a common name on our newsfeed this spring.
