Hofstra lands star Queens recruit Malik Nichols
Thursday, 13 February 2014
ImageNew York Post: Hofstra’s on-court slump hasn’t extended into recruiting.

The Pride have excelled there since Joe Mihalich came to Long Island from Niagara in the offseason.

That continued last week when Queens product and junior college standout Malik Nichols picked the CAA program, committing to Hofstra four years after he initially pledged there.

The versatile 6-foot-6 forward committed to Hofstra at the start of his senior year, back in 2010, yet he didn’t qualify out of Boys & Girls after leading the Kangaroos to a second straight PSAL Class AA crown. Rather than attend junior college, he wound up at prep school Bridgton Academy in Maine, a year of development that just delayed the inevitable.

Nichols, who went from Bridgton to South Plains College in Levelland, Texas, committed to Hofstra last week, picking the Pride and its new staff over Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Lafayette, Fordham and TCU. South Plains assistant coach Hank Plona said Hofstra made Nichols a clear priority, sending each member of its staff to the junior college in West Texas.
