    Guess the kid prefers gumbo and po' boys to playing in the NCAA tournament.
    The fact that he is going to Tulane tells me that he is not that good of a player, relatively speaking.

    It confirms for me that he was no longer being recruited by Xavier but just acted like X was in it until the very end.

    That too. I don't recall ever reading on Scout that X had started recruiting him again. If that was happening, we would have heard something. Those guys are pretty good on recruiting updates.

    He wasn't being recruited by Xavier anymore. That ship had sailed. I think he misplayed his hand, frankly.

    Yep. Seemed like Mack called his bluff on that "commitment" a while ago.

    Best of luck.

    I know, it was just further confirmation of what I already knew. I agree that he appears to have misplayed his hand, as he had the opportunity. It wouldn't surprise me if the continued mentions of Xavier were the actions of a teenage kid trying to save face after messing up (and a coaching staff supporting him in that regard).

    Whatever the case, Tulane is a pretty fantastic "consolation prize" for Nichols. Harvard of the South located in New Orleans. The kid did just fine. Hope he tears up the AAC.

    Go -

    I was also referring to the fact that Butler was after Nichols too, not just X.

    No way in hell that Tulane makes the NCAA tourney in his time in NO.

    Of course Xavier and Butler are better basketball choices. But Tulane is a far better school than both, and it's located in New Orleans. I'm just saying that no one should feel back for Nichols.
