Berkley WR/SS Nolan Givan discusses first offer from Austin Peay State

A name that has been flying under the radar up until the past few weeks when he has been performing extremely well at 7 on 7's has been Berkley 2016 WR/SS Nolan Givan.  The soon to be Senior at Berkley is a lengthy 6'3" 218 lbs WR/SS who can perform exceptionally well at either position and on Wednesday received his 1st offer from Austin Peay State University.

Austin Peay State is an FCS program who has made a priority to recruit Michigan in the past 2 or so years.  Givan described his feelings of receiving his 1st offer, "It feels great, I have just been waiting and working this offseason and it is an unreal feeling."

APSU hasn't really recruited Givan for long as they look to begin a relationship to potentially land the Berkley WR/SS.  Nolan Givan discussed what he knew about Austin Peay State's coaching staff, "I didn't know a whole lot at first about the school. But I did some research and found out some information. The coach seems like a cool guy and I'm looking forward to the future!"

Now that Givan has earned his 1st offer, he has no plans to stop working and has a limitless potential for the upcoming camps.  Givan talked about how the offer will motivate him through the offseason, "This is a huge confidence boost and it pushes me to work harder this offseason and perfect my game as much as I can."
