Class of 2013 offensive tackle Tristan Nickelson (League City, Texas/Clear Falls) took an unofficial visit to Texas for the Texas Tech game and came away thoroughly impressed.

“Out of the schools that I’ve gone to, Texas is the top,” Nickelson said. “I just thought they had the top facilities. I thought the way the coaching staff interacted with the players was great. I got to meet with Johnathan Gray and take a picture with him. It was awesome.”

It was Nickelson’s first Texas game this season. He attended Texas A&M’s game against Baylor on Oct. 15 and will take unofficial visits to Arkansas (Nov. 12) and Auburn (Nov. 26). During the summer Nickelson (6-foot-8, 285 pounds), who holds an Arkansas offer, camped at Virginia. On the way up he stopped by Virginia Tech, and on the way home he visited Auburn.
