Scottsdale (Az.) Chaparral OLB Chris Fox gets new offer
Faddis says yes to the Wolfpack
"I really didn't get much attention from schools," Faddis told JCFootball.com Tuesday afternoon. "It was mainly just D-2 schools, so I decided to come to Palomar and give it a shot."
This past season, Faddis combined with Nevada-bound Chris Boudreaux to form one of the top JUCO safety tandems in the country. The freshman played mainly strong safety in the Comets' scheme and totaled 66 tackles to go along with one interception.
Because he was a freshman, schools didn't really pay much attention, but then when it was found out that he was a full-qualifier and could leave at any time, Nevada came calling and set up a visit for this past weekend.
"I visited there and just had a lot of fun," Faddis said. "On the last day of my visit, I got to meet with coach Ault and he said 'you have a full-scholarship here, so do we have a deal' and I said 'yes' and committed to him.
"They pursued me and I didn't want to take the chances of coming back to Palomar and getting injured, so basically I took the first D-1 offer, but it was more than that. I really liked the school and the staff and the fact that (Boudreaux) will be there with me just makes it that much better."
Besides his outstanding Football I.Q., Faddis also is very strong for a player his size, putting up 225 pounds 20 times on the bench while also posting a solid 4.46 hand-timed 40.
Faddis will enroll at Nevada next week and he'll have four years to play three once he arrives.
