Nickens, a 6-foot-6 wing out Westtown (Pa.) High, committed to Mark Turgeon and Maryland, per a source.
Following a big spring period, Nickens gained interest from a host of programs including Oregon State, Temple, Providence, Seton Hall, St. Joe's, VCU, Dayton, Richmond, Creighton, Wake Forest, St. John's, Oklahoma, Miami and Georgetown
A three-star prospect, Nickens is a long, lean wing prospect. He's known for his ability to make shots from three, but he's also developed his ball skills and is a shot maker from mid-range.
Mark Turgeon now has a stable of incoming guards and wing players that can help when they get to campus. To go with Nickens, Maryland has commitments from four-star guards Romelo Trimble and Dion Wiley.
