Fresh off a visit to Oregon State, 2014 small forward Jared Nickens is prepping for a trip to Maryland.
“Just looking, hopefully I enjoy myself, see if it’s a good fit for me,” Nickens said. “I speak to Coach Turgeon often, and we talk about how I fit in and how he interacts with his players and stuff like that. I’m pretty sure I’ll learn more.”
Making the final roster would culminate a journey that began back in October for Crawford, two months before he had even played his first high school game. Through two minicamps, the pool of players has been whittled down, with Crawford showcasing skills that continue to bud following a solid sophomore campaign and intense offseason workouts.
