Bowling Green junior receiver Nacarius Fant has been on a whirlwind recruiting tour in recent weeks.
Fant had a “good experience” on a visit to Ohio State last weekend, he said, as the Buckeyes logged a 63-38 win over Nebraska.
He also visited Illinois on Sept. 22 for its game against Louisiana Tech, as well as Kentucky on Sept. 15 for the Wildcats’ overtime loss to Western Kentucky.
“I’m just trying to make it to a few places,” Fant said. “Next year, I’ll get down to committing. This year, I’m just focusing on school and taking in everything.”
Fant has 665 receiving yards and nine touchdowns this season. He currently has scholarship offers from Illinois and WKU.
“They showed me around the facilities and I talked to coach (Tim) Beckman,” Fant said of his visit to Illinois. “With them offering me, it felt good to get up there and look around at things.”
Fant will also take a trip this weekend to Vanderbilt for the Commodores’ game against Florida, he said. He doesn’t plan to make any serious decisions until next season.
“I just want to see the coaches and the campus and the facilities, and see if they’ve got fans that really care about football,” he said. “It’s little things, actually, to see what fits me the best.”
Fant said he’s also expecting WKU coach Willie Taggart to be in attendance Friday as Bowling Green visits cross-town rival Warren Central.
