247sports’ No. 47 ranked high school junior small forward Jimmy Nichols has committed to Providence.

 

The 6-8 lefty wing averaged 16 points and 10 rebounds this season for Conway HS (SC), when he was a Class 5A All-Star and the Toast of the Coast Player of the Year.

 

“It was the best choice for me because of the opportunity,” Nichols told Myrtle Beach’s ABC 15 of choosing the Friars. “They have three seniors leaving, and most of them play my position, so that was the best move for me.”

 

“I’m very excited because it’s the Big East,” added Nichols. “The opportunity to come in and play right away in the Big East was big [and] Providence has played in March four years in a row.”

 

Scout’s Brian Snow loves Nichols’ all-around game.

 

“At around 6-foot-7 with long arms, Nichols brings a lot of versatility to the court,” wrote Snow. “He is very comfortable as a stretch power forward, but also he might be able to spend time as a pure wing. Nichols can really shoot the ball from deep, and especially good when shooting off the catch.”

 

“Also he is a solid athlete who can score on straight line drives to the rim, and brings defensive versatility,” adds Snow.

 

The Friars beat out the likes of Arizona State, Georgetown, Kansas State, Nebraska, Pittsburgh and VCU to land Nichols.

 

At Providence, Nichols will join fellow 2018 recruits ESPN No. 53 ranked A.J. Reeves and No. 41 PF Kris Monroe.
