6-7 Jimmy Nichols took an official visit to Providence over the weekend and now he’s ready to announce a commitment between the Friars, USC and Miami. He will do so on WPDE TV-15 in Myrtle Beach on Tuesday shortly after 6:00 PM. As of Sunday night, Nichols said he had not made his decision.
Nichols said he enjoyed his visit to Providence and saw several things about the program and the school that he liked.
“The way that they play, how small the college is, everybody knew who everybody was, the players are close and I like Coach (Ed) Cooley and all the assistants,” Nichols said. “I just wanted to see what Providence had to offer because I know what Miami has and I know what South Carolina has. I took an unofficial to South Carolina. I haven’t been to Miami but I have my own thoughts about Miami. I talk to them a lot and I like Miami, too.”
Nichols said he last talked with USC before the visit with Providence.
As for what will be the biggest factors in picking the school, Nichols said, “Conference, how big the conference is, and the opportunity I’ll have to play.”
USC has yet to offer Nichols but he said the Gamecocks had planned to do so on his official visit which he had scheduled for this coming weekend.
