No. 90 Jr Landers Nolley Picks Top 8 Schools

Virginia Tech Gets No. 90 Sr Landers Nolley

ESPN No. 90 ranked high school junior Landers Nolley has picked his top eight schools.


They are: Illinois, Florida State, UConn, NC State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, and Georgia State.


The 6-7 small forward averaged 24.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 1.9 steals on 57 percent field goal shooting this season for Langston Hughes HS (Fairburn, GA), leading the team to the Georgia State Championship.


Nolley also had a strong AAU season, averaging 21.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists for Team Loaded at the Adidas Summer Championships in Las Vegas.


The swingman also shot a team-leading 50 percent from three for Nike South Beach in the Nike EYBL.


Last month, Nolley announced that he would be taking official visits to four of the schools on this top eight list: Illinois, UConn, Georgia and Virginia Tech, so it could be assumed that these could potentially be the favorites.


Nolley said his recent (Sept. 1-3) visit to Illinois went well.


“The atmosphere appeals to me because it’s a basketball school,” Nolley told Zagsblog of the Illini. “I also like how they are as a team and just the opportunity to have an impact as a freshman.”


“I would be a good fit there,” added Nolley. “They play high paced with a lot of shots. I could play about 25-28 minutes per game.”


Here’s what Nolley had to say about two of his other potential favorite schools, UConn and Virginia Tech


“[UConn] Coach [Kevin] Ollie loves me. They have nice guards and I think they’re gonna be good this year. Guard play is big with them,” Nolley told D1Vision.com. “[Virginia Tech] head coach [Buzz Williams] loves me [also]. They’re in the ACC. In the last couple years, the ACC has had more draftees than any other conference.”


Basketball Society Online’s Stephen Rodgers believes that whichever school lands Nolley will be getting a heck of a player.


“Jamie Shaw of Hoop Phenom Report [said] that his game and physical stature are eerily similar to [the Suns’] Devin Booker,” wrote Rodgers. “Landers is a guy who can score on all three levels with ease. He has the type of skill set to play either point guard, shooting guard, or small forward.”
