Why Yale? “I chose Yale because of the fit on the court and with the coaches, along with the outstanding opportunities the university offers. Success is available to me during the season as well as after my four-year commitment in the classroom.”
Coach Jones says: Nick has a great understanding of the game and always seems to make the right play. He always looks to try and make his teammates better before looking for his own offense.”
