Nesta Silvera has been a Miami commit since February, but he did not sign during the early signing period, and may take some official visits.

The four-star American Heritage defensive tackle has called Miami his dream school, and it seems unlikely that Nesta Silvera will be signing with a different school come February.

However, he could take a look at a few other programs to validate his decision.

Based on a recent interview with 247Sports, it sounds like he'll likely take an official visit to Ohio State, and possibly Florida and Tennessee.

Florida assistant coaches Todd Grantham and Jajuan Seider both went in-home with Silvera.

“My mom liked Grantham,” Silvera said. “Coach Seider has always been cool since he was at West Virginia.”

Silvera hasn’t scheduled his Ohio State official because he wants to get Miami locked in first.

“Coach (Larry) Johnson is another good d-line coach in college football,” he said. “One of the top dogs along with Coach (Kuligowsk). Coach Zach Smith is a cool guy. I like him and the DB coach Coach Kerry (Coombs) he’s cool as well.”

Silvera added he may also take an official to Tennessee on Jan. 12.

Silvera is the No. 167 player in the class of 2018, and the 15th-ranked defensive tackle. It sounds like Miami is most likely still the plan, but weird things can happen late in recruiting cycles.
