Nolan Hickman is one of the top-rated players in the state of Washington and was set to break out this summer but can’t now due to COVID-19. According to 247Sports, Hickman’s the No. 59 player nationally and the No. 9 point guard in the class of 2021. He has found himself with major recruitment which includes a major Pac-12 presence.
“Oklahoma, Washington, Oregon State, Gonzaga, Washington State, Tennessee, Memphis, and USC, are in the mix,” Hickman told Stockrisers.com. But, it isn’t done yet, there are plenty of programs that are newer compared to the programs he already listed.
Among those new ones: Arizona, Kansas, Utah State, and Cal-Berkeley. As far as these programs go, all are involved as Kansas has recently offered him a scholarship as did Arizona and Sean Miller and the Wildcats are in hot pursuit.
His first virtual campus visit was completed with Arizona, who has done two of those with Hickman and they will continue to recruit him heavily as they are with a fellow in-state prospect and close friend, Paolo Banchero.
Hickman isn’t speeding up the process at all, he’s actually taking things real slow as more programs continue to get involved. He says that he will likely make a decision around next Spring, which is just about one whole year away.
Finally, Hickman described his game and placed his thoughts on these crazy times: “My game is score at will PG, very crafty, great at sharing the ball and loves to win. I have been great during these times. Things are hard trying to find a gym but i find my way to get work in.”
