Nick O’Leary Improves Ranking
After a very good performance at the recent Friday Night Lights Drills, Nick O’Leary moved from the 36th best prospect nationally to the 26th. He also obtained the #1 ranking among tight ends. Fans were hoping the West Palm Beach Florida 2011 prospect would be given a 5 star ranking by Rivals.com. But giving 5 star rankings to tight ends is a rare occasion and O’Leary remains a 4 star prospect today.
