Jared Nickens, a 6-6 wing in the class of 2014, took an unofficial visit to Providence today according to his tweet. Maybe Cooley should have tried to put a uniform on him and seen if anyone would notice.
Last year Nickens played at St. Patrick’s in NJ, but he reclassified to 2014 and moved to Westtown School in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
He visited Syracuse over the summer and Rutgers for Midnight Madness in October, and has offers and interest from a variety of BIG EAST schools. According to Rivals Nickens has offers from Fordham, Penn State, Seton Hall, SMU, Temple, Towson, and VCU — Georgetown, Syracuse, Notre Dame, Villanova, and Virginia also have interest. Providence offered on August 30th.
