There’s no denying that programs all across the country have interest in Daishen Nix, but the five-star guard is currently keeping his recruitment in the dark. As of right now, only a few teams know where they stand with him.
Nix is the No. 1 point guard and No. 15 overall recruit in the 2020 class, per 247Sports. Many scouts believe his vision on the court is similar to Jason Kidd and Lonzo Ball.
His current list of suitors is all over the map, featuring schools like Alabama, Gonzaga, Maryland and UCLA. On the other hand, it also has powerhouse programs in Kansas and Kentucky.
Although Nix didn’t reveal which programs he plans on visiting, it appears that two of the most historic basketball schools will be part of his trip.
According to Daishen Nix’s high school coach and legal guardian, Greg Lockridge, Kansas and Kentucky will be two of the five programs that he visits in the coming weeks.
Both Kansas and Kentucky would be excellent spots for the future star guard.
Matt Norlander of CBS Sports went in-depth on Nix’s recruitment. He provided a breakdown of the five-star guard’s skillet and some interesting intel from Lockridge.

Lockridge doesn’t want Nix to commit to a program that is clogged with talent. However, he does want him to play alongside other great players.
With Nix and his camp keeping his recruitment close to the vest, it’s hard to predict where he’ll land.
