Briarcrest forward Austin Nichols has seen his recruitment soar in recent months.
Schools like North Carolina, Duke, Memphis, and many more have either expressed interest or offered him a scholarship. The latest school to jump into Nichols’ recruitment is Louisville, which offered him two weeks ago.
The junior forward will also be playing part of his AAU ball (on the Nike EYBL circuit) with the Bluff City Legends, a club that features junior studs Nick King of East and Southwind’s Johnathan Williams III, who are also big Memphis targets.
Nichols also accepted an invitation to compete in Germany for the USA U-17 team in April.
The 4-star forward has no timetable set for a decision. He’s considering Memphis, Florida, Tennessee, Duke, Virginia, and North Carolina among others. He recently took an unofficial visit to Tennessee.
