Nick Bosa Up to No. 2 in Scout Rankings, Still No Decision on Future

When Scout released it's latest top-300 rankings Wednesday, a whole bunch of Ohio State commits lined the list.

One name, though still undecided but of Buckeye interest, made a move up the list to the No. 2 spot.

Nick Bosa, the little brother of current Buckeye All-American defensive end Joey Bosa, bolted up the rankings and became the top rated player from the south according to the site.

"There is a new No. 1 in the South and it is versatile defensive lineman, Nick Bosa out of one of the top high school programs in America, St. Thomas Aquinas," national recruiting analyst Chad Simmons said, according to Scout.

Bosa's jump from No. 7 to No. 2 in the rankings further implicates how his commitment would be another massive get for Urban Meyer and company at Ohio State, the school that's widely been the frontrunner to receive his services.

"I cannot say it is definite, but I should have my decision made this summer,” Bosa told Scout last month, before listing the Buckeyes, Florida State, Florida and Notre Dame as his final four.

Big brother Joey said during Sugar Bowl week that he wasn't trying to "push" Nick anywhere when it comes to deciding where to go to college, but good news could be coming for the Buckeyes.

"He loves it at Ohio State," Joey Bosa said Dec. 30. "If things stay the way they are, I think he'll end up here."

Barely a month later, though, Joey took to Twitter to inform the masses he wasn't going to be the one to break the news of his commitment — regardless what school.

His reasoning is appropriate, too, and you can't blame him.

The Bosa brothers are close, but it is clear the elder one isn't going to try and steal the spotlight from younger one, even though it's difficult with all he's accomplished at Ohio State. What's scary, though, is many think Nick could be even better than Joey.

"The new Bosa is just as good - maybe better," Simmons said. "He does not camp, he does not worry about all the prestige with invites to different events, but when you see him play and compete, he is among the best in the country each and every time."

While fanbases of four power programs wait with bated breath for his decision, Nick said it'll be coming soon.

“Ohio State is there right now, but I have to look at the other schools a little more. Until I have something to compare Ohio State to, I cannot make a decision,” Bosa told Scout. “I see my decision coming pretty soon, though. I do not think it will take me that long to know where I want to go.”

But don't expect it to be too soon, especially because he's likely spending some time at home in the immediate future resting and recuperating.
