Sykes Talks Recent Camps & Offers
The summer has been kind to Nile Sykes. As he has gone from camp to camp, he has put his pass rushing skills on display, earning several offers in the process and increasing the interest from other parties. On Monday, he camped at Wisconsin, where he again had a good showing, and the Badgers could be one of the schools who tacks on to his offer list. "It went well," he said. "No offer today, but Coach Ash told me to call him on Wednesday, so we'll see what happens." Although he has been several places this summer, Madison still stood out to Sykes. "I like it a lot. It was one of the coolest places I've seen." The 6'2, 215-lb Sykes has offers from Toledo, Northern Illinois and Illinois. The Illini were his most recent offer and he is giving them a good look. "Illinois is a great environment and I love the coaching staff and what they're doing over there. I definitely have a lot of interest in them. I look forward to going down and checking out a couple games this season." Sykes had 12 sacks and three forced fumbles as a junior.
