Tyrone Nash Reworks His List

Scout.com reporter Mike Sullivan of the High School New York/New Jersey website spent some time on Saturday morning talking to talented combo forward Tyrone Nash, who is preparing for his next challenge ...

During the summer the Kentucky basketball program presented Tyrone Nash a big decision. Take a scholarship offer from one of the country's most treasured programs or head up to Northfield Mount Hermon to continue to polish his individual game.

For Nash, who was also offered by schools like Notre Dame, St. John's, and Seton Hall, it was a tough decision. However, Nash, as documented on this site, opted for another year of seasoning on the prep level.

"I leave for Northfield on September 1st," Nash said. "It's going to be fun. I am looking forward to going up there. We are playing in the Hall of Fame game, a tournament in Rhode Island, and a tournament at Basketball City (New York City)."

Tyrone, a 6-foot-6 1/2 inch versatile athlete, is still seriously Kentucky. "I want to take a visit there," Nash said. "I am trying to set one up."

In addition, Nash is also looking to take visits to Notre Dame and Florida. "Florida started talking to me after the summer," Nash said. "The conversations have gone well. I hope to also set up a visit there."

If Nash is to stay home, he has one school in mind. "St. John's is the school I would go to if I stay home," he said. "I have been there a few times and know the coaches well."

Boston College is also on Nash's list, despite three commitments already. Recently, the Eagles added 6-foot-9 forward Josh Southern from Michigan. Corey Raji, a 6-foot-5 swingman from New Jersey, has also verballed as has Rakim Sanders from the state of Rhode Island.

"I like Boston College too," he said. "I just have to see where I fit in right now."

Nash hopes to make a decision in the next few months. "I would like to make a decision in the Fall," Tyrone said. "I just have to set up the visits and then decide."

Tyrone played last season for Lawrence-Woodmere Academy on Long Island, New York.
