Junior forward Nic Codie discusses his first high major offer
Junior forward last week Nick Cody received his first major offer from California. Carrollton, Texas, 6ft 8x hybrid quad Newman Smith, Cody says the offer came after the Golden Bears initially showed serious interest in his game.
“I have been in touch with Andrew Francis wait a minute,” Cody said. “We have a very good relationship. He called me and said that he really wants me to be there. He didn’t want to wait any longer, so he put Mark Fox on line. Coach Fox said he liked my game and what he saw in me. He told me about his recovery plans and proposed to me.”
Cody says he’s with the Golden Bears Oral Roberts, St. Louis, Sam Houston State, SMU, Texas-ArlingtonAnd Tulsa whether programs are active in recruiting him. He was in SMU and Tulsa on informal visits. He summed up both visits and shared his thoughts on the Billiken with 247Sports:
St. Louis: “Phil Forte on good terms with my coach. He always talks to him about me. He looks at my highlights and tells me that I’m fine. He also sends me information about the school and news about their games.”
SMU: “The visit was great. They treated me like I was already part of their family and they knew me. The trainers were very nice and made sure I was good all the time. The football match I went to was good and the players were nice and welcoming. They also have good equipment.”
Tulsa: “The visit was very wonderful. They have very good amenities. We also have to go to the game. I liked how hard they played, but they just didn’t have the size. I could imagine myself playing there.”
With the addition of his first high offer, Cody says he’s open to more schools recruiting him as he gears up for spring and summer. During open periods, he wants to prove his ability to score and handle basketball by leading his teammates in the right direction. In addition, he wants to show his worth as a perimeter defender.
An unranked prospect in the junior class, expect Cody to earn a national ranking when the 2024 player rankings are updated this winter.
