Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Daniel Nixon
Committed to: George Washington
What the Player Said:
PHR: What made George Washington the place for you?
Nixon: I fell in love with the coaching staff. Coach Jamion is a great coach that cares about me on and off the court. We have built a relationship with each other and he feels that I can really do big things at GW.
PHR: What did the staff have to say when you told them?
Nixon: They were very excited and were very happy. This was right after their road win as well. They really wanted me very bad and I can tell with the way they talked to me. I was very excited and fortunate.
PHR: What are they hoping you can bring with your game to the program?
Nixon: I feel like I can bring my offensive skill sets and abilities, body, and my passion of the game and the love I have for it to be better each and every day. I feel that’s what every coach wants, is someone to be coachable.
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“I feel like I’m very versatile, I feel like I can make it hard for defenders to guard me because of the space I create with my shot and athleticism. I love dunking the ball and I’m a scorer on all three level and I feel I can guard multiple positions.” – Nixon on his game back in May 2022
“Nixon is a strong, physical wing who can do a little bit of everything on the court. He finished with an efficient 13 points, shooting 5-9 from the field and 2-3 from the three-point line. His size, strength and ball-handling abilities make him a difficult player to guard. Defenders have to respect his ability to knock down the perimeter shot, so they have to get up and guard him. And when they do, Nixon is able to create off the bounce and attack the basket. He uses his strong frame to keep defenders on his hip once he gets an edge on them. He also is able to take the contact and finish strong at the basket. His versatility on both ends of the floor played a huge help in Winston-Salem Christian’s win.” – Colby Lewis from The Bash 2020
“Probably the best game we have seen from Nixon in the early season, as he really did an excellent job of not settling and attacking the rim, using his body to bully through defenders and finish or get fouled. Did also display his range like he has been known for with a three-ball.” – Patrick O’Brien from November Classic in 2020
