Roy Williams offers 2019 shooting guard Josh Nickelberry

After watching sophomore shooting guard Josh Nickelberry play on Thursday night, UNC head coach Roy Williams extended a scholarship offer on Friday morning.

The 6-foot-4, 175-pound guard is a three-star prospect according to the 247Sports Composite and a top-10 player in the state of North Carolina.

Nickelberry is a skilled shooter and capable ball-handler who could see time at both guard positions once he arrives on a college campus.

Nickelberry has made a number of trips to the North Carolina campus including each of the last two Late Night With Roy events. He also visited UNC in mid-September and attended the Tar Heels’ game against Tennessee in December.

Nickelberry will also be in attendance on Saturday night when UNC faces off against North Carolina State in Chapel Hill.

In addition to the recent offer from North Carolina, he holds offers from Baylor, Clemson, Georgia Tech, VCU, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
