Samuell Williamson wasn’t the only member of Louisville’s 2019 recruiting class to tear it up in a high school all-star game recently.
Josh Nickelberry scored 33 points and was named the MVP of the East Team at the recent Big Baller Brand All-American Game in Las Vegas on Sunday.

While “Big Baller Brand All-American Game” sounds understandably ridiculous, the game was able to pull a handful of top 50 recruits, including former U of L targets Rocket Watts (Michigan State) and Jahmius Ramsey (Texas Tech).
Nickelberry finished his high school career with 2,904 points, making him the second-leading all-time scorer in the history of North Carolina high school basketball.
