Nick Honor is an elite student-athlete currently attending Lake Highland Prep in Orlando, Florida. Nick is one of the most coveted backcourt players in the entire south, currently ranked the #17 point guard in the class of 2018 per ESPN. The 5’10 floor general broke out on the national scene this Spring on the prestigious EYBL circuit, where the sophomore averaged 11 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.2 steals per game on 35.6% from three, all while playing up a year in the 17u division. College programs have no doubt taken notice, and the offers have started to come in recently for Nick, as college coaches covet the knockdown shooter with crafty moves around the basket.
