Virginia DB has bright future

Xavier Nickens-Yzer is a talented player on both sides of the ball for Centreville High in Virginia, and Scout caught up with him following a strong performance at the Step It Up Combine in Jacksonville.

Xavier Nickens-Yzer is only a sophomore but he's already emerging as a legitimate college prospect. At 6-feet and 180 pounds, Nickens-Yzer finished the 2012 season with almost 400 yards rushing and four touchdowns. While playing on defense, he had 79 tackles, one interception, and one blocked kick. He's definitely a high quality player to remember in Virginia's 2015 class.
