That guy looks like anything but the 15th ranked player.
You couldn't be more on another planet... I have the great luck and good fortune to have a daughter who is in the same class as Nico. She is a cheerleader and so I've been at every high school game of his since he was a freshman. This really doesn't mean all too much, but FWIW, I have never seen any other high school basketball player play at the level Nico plays at. In fact, I've never seen any other player even come close to hitting Nico's level. The kid is a super-freak in every sense of the word. To start, he works his ass off. Beyond his amazing God-gifted skills, his work-ethic is second to none. He literally is training or playing every day of the week, 12 months a year. I'll admit that I was skeptical when I first saw him play, only due to his size. Even as a freshman, his skills jumped off the court. But up until last season, his size was an extreme detriment as he was constantly pushed and shoved around. But last season he grew, a lot. He popped over 6 feet and added weight and muscle. Now, he's over 6''2" and has added serious weight and strength, particularly below the waist.
The kid is a 100% natural if there was ever one... a lot like Steve Nash in terms of Basketball I.Q., except unlike Nash, Nico can jump out of the gym! He's been EASILY dunking the ball the past 3 years and now with the added height and leg strength, he flat-out touches the ceiling when he dunks! It's amazing to watch.
He excels with literally no peers when it comes to ball-handling, passing, rebounding and shooting. His shooting % from the floor and from the line is off the charts. And he's a lethal 3-point shooter to boot.
His parents were also gifted athletes and I believe he truly gets his toughness and drive from his mother. She's Italian and played on an Italian pro volleyball team. His dad had a short stint in the NBA and then in the Italian pro basketball league, which is how he met his wife. But Nico's mom is a true beast in the way she attacks life! She keeps herself in incredible physical condition and is a passionate entrepreneur. Nico is their only child and the kid has been conditioned since the day he was born that the only way to live life is to find your passion and go at it HARD every second of every day.
It's actually crazy as, Pinnacle High School also possesses the #1 QB in the entire country - Spencer Rattler, who has committed to Oklahoma. If you watch Netflix, there is a show called QB 1. They are currently filming Spenser for their 2018 season. Not sure when it will air, but it should give a solid picture of Spenser... where the contrast between he and Nico should be quite evident. While both are driven, Spenser gives off a much more cocky and entitled impression, whereas Nico is significantly more quiet and humble. Nico is more like the quiet assassin and Spenser is all about being right up your grill, talking trash and lots of towel-waving celebrations...
It's very rare to be able to watch up close and personal, two incredible high school athletes in the same class and same high school... both of whom appear to have above average chances of making it to the highest levels in their respective sports.
