Mike Nardi, a dynamic 6-1 point guard from St. Patrick H.S. in Elizabeth, N.J., said that N.C. State has emerged as the leader in his recruiting process. But the Pack has yet to offer a scholarship.
"I've been in contact with them a lot and the assistant coaches have been able to see me and they are really interested," Nardi said. "They have a guard who will be leaving when I come in, so I think it could be a very good situation for me."
Nardi told the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com that he has offers from Rutgers, Seton Hall and Villanova, while UConn, Pitt, N.C. State and Stanford round out his list of seven colleges.
Nardi said that Pitt, N.C. State and UConn haven't offered yet because the head coaches of those programs haven't seen him in action. Nardi has taken unofficial visits to Villanova and N.C. State in recent weeks.
Nardi plans on attending the Nike All-American Camp in Indianapolis next month, and could play with either the Newark Rams program or the New Jersey Celtics squad.
An offensive minded floor general who can run the show and hit open shots from the perimeter, Nardi said that he could make a late summer decision. We will keep you posted on his situation, so stay tuned.
