"Yes my understanding is committed to USF. I spoke to him before he got on the plane and he said he gave them a verbal," said his head coach Hunter Berg. "His visit went real well, he thought it was a great school, and they obliviously play in a great conference and thought they were a great fit for him."
The 6-foot, 185 pound guard had several offers and was being recruited by many schools before narrowing his choices to USF, Texas A&M and Oklahoma before choosing USF.
"He was getting recruiting by a lot of schools and South Florida committed to him early," said Berg. "He was considering schools like Texas A&M and Oklahoma, and through the recruiting process different schools were also involved like Georgetown, Creighton, West Rutgers, and Nebraska were talking to him. I guess it went real well down at South Florida this weekend."
Nash had an impressive junior season averaging 22ppg, 5 assists, 6.5 rebounds, and 2 steals per game, while shooting 42% from 3-point range. Nash was named to the JUCO all-American second team, and was the only freshman member. Nash also earned All-Conference honors and also was selected as the Conference's Most Valuable Player as well.
"Player wise he's quick, he's strong and he's a playmaker," said Berg. "He needed him to score and obviously his numbers say that he can. He's an excellent scorer and shoots the ball really well and has a great pull-up game. He can slash and put it on the floor all the way to the rim. I think his game will develop into more of a true point guard and he can distribute the ball and can really pass the ball."
Once he arrives on campus Nash will have 3 years to play.Watch Highlight Video
