Nix officially visited Maryland back in November and UCLA over the weekend. He also has a visit scheduled to Alabama for the end of September.
In addition to being the top point guard in his class and the top player in Nevada, Nix is the No. 14 overall recruit in the 2020 cycle, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings.
Per his 247Sports evaluation, Nix”projects as a successful college point guard with NBA upside.”
He’s listed as a potential second round pick down the road and compared to former Villanova star Jalen Brunson.
