Notable: The son of former NBA star Darryl Dawkins, Nicholas is the No. 57 guard prospect in the nation and the No. 9 overall prospect in Pennsylvania. He has good size and probably will get a little bigger and leaner before he gets to Penn State next year.

Quotable: “Being a Pa. kid, this is a dream. Penn State is close to home and has an amazing coaching staff and fan base,”— he told 247Sports.
