Nichols, who also received an offer from Duke last week, becomes the sixth member of the 2013 recruiting class
to receive an offer from UNC and is the third post player, joining current power forward commit Isaiah Hicks and consensus 5-star power forward Julius Randle. Randle was evaluated heavily by the UNC staff this past weekend at the Nike EYBL event in Hampton, Virginia.
