Three-Star Recruit Nazeer Bostick Commits to Penn State Hoops

Just a few months after Pat Chambers lost his only recruit of Penn State basketball’s 2016 class, forcing him to start from square one, he finally has another first member in Nazeer Bostick, a three-star shooting guard from Philadelphia. The 6-foot-5 Bostick had visited Happy Valley several times before committing Thursday evening, and held offers from Drexel and James Madison, among other mid-level schools.

247 ranks Bostick as the 129th best player in the nation, and the sixth best in the state of Pennsylvania. He continues the trend of guards from Philadelphia, joining D.J. Newbill, and most recently Shep Garner, who was a major contributor last year as a freshman. Assistants Keith Urgo and Dwayne Anderson most heavily recruited Rostick, who rung in the announcement over his personal twitter.

The commitment will vault Penn State to sixth in the Big Ten for the class of 2016 and 27th nationally, according to 247. An even more important part of this commitment, however, may come from the connections it creates for Pat Chambers and his staff. Bostick attends Roman Catholic high school, along with Tony Carr, a four-star recruit and one of Penn State’s biggest targets in the 2016 class. Many also believe that wherever Carr goes, his close friend and another huge Penn State target, Lamar Stevens will go too. So, while everything is far from set in stone, this has the potential to be the beginning of a gold mine for the Nittany Lions.

Bostick’s Hudl page is hardly filled out, but you can check out a video (not embeddable) of him in action. And, if nothing else, Penn State gets a solid guard in 2016, and a pretty great photoshop from his tweet.
