Malachi Nix of Niles North High School is one of the top uncommitted guards still on the board. Nix is the all-time leading scorer at Furman and recently just wrapped up an official visit to the school.
We caught up with Nix who broke down the visit.
Talk about your official visit to Furman and how it went?
“It was great. The coaches showed me the campus, and it was really nice. I got to play with the guys. Then we went to a few restaurants and I just got to spend time with the people at Furman.”
Talk about your relationship with newly hired head coach Niko Medved and the coaching staff?
“My relationship with Coach Medved and Coach Richey is great. I can tell they genuinely care about me, and are very passionate about Furman and basketball. And on top of that it's a similar situation to when I came into Niles North.”
What other schools are actively recruiting you?
“Loyola, Western Michigan, Tulane, Grand Valley State, and Ferris State.”
Do you have a timetable on when you want to decide?
“I don't have one. I'm really trying to take my time. And see what's best for me but I wouldn't mind deciding soon.”
