One of the nation’s top linemen has narrowed down his options as four-star lineman Addison Nichols is down to just three schools.

The Georgia native shared the latest update regarding his recruitment on Wednesday, revealing that Tennessee, Ohio State and North Carolina are his three finalists.

This news comes after Nichols took visits to Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio State and USC in June. Nichols is from Norcross, Ga., where he plays for Greater Atlanta Christian School.

“This was an incredibly difficult decision narrowing this down. I just want to say thank you to all of the schools who weren’t selected and thank you for your interest in me. But, without further ado, this is my final top 3,” Nichols posted.

The 6-foot-5, 318-pound Nichols is rated as a four-star prospect, the No. 3 interior offensive lineman and the No. 12 overall prospect from the state of Georgia in the 2022 recruiting cycle by 247Sports Composite Rankings.

In addition to being rated as one of the nation’s best linemen, Nichols is also committed to playing in the 2022 All-American Bowl.
