6’8 wing Tyler Nickel has received an offer from Indiana University!

 

4-star PF Tyler Nickel attends East Rockingham HS in Elkton, VA.  No stats available on MaxPreps.

Nickel, a 6'6" forward, just finished his sophomore season at East Rockingham where he averaged 26.7 points per game to go along with 7.8 rebounds per contest. He earned First Team All-State honors from the VHSL while helping guide the Eagles to an appearance in the state semifinals.

But perhaps Nickel's most impressive accomplishment was announced earlier this week when Keyes received confirmation from the VHSL that Nickel's 1,464 career points is the most ever by a boys basketball player through their sophomore year in Virginia High School League history. Nickel scored 662 points as a freshman in 2018-2019 and 802 points as a sophomore this past season.

Indiana is also seen as a school on you hard.

Nickel: “Indiana just said that all-around what I do on the court, for them that is what they need especially with my toughness.”

It's behind the paywall but 247Sports has an article captioned Six schools prioritizing top 100 wing Tyler Nickel. 

Can anyone with a subscription tell us if we're one of the 6.  Don't violate the paywall with details just if we're 1 of 6 mentioned.  Thanks in advance.
