|Nino Nesbitt 5'1 PG 2024 Pickerington
We’ve written about him several times on this website, but Nino Nesbitt’s (5’1/PG/Pickerington/2024) consistent performance has boosted his stock in our eyes. Most recently, Nesbitt not only made the all-star game at the September Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase, he took home Top 5 honors as well. Moreover, we ranked Nesbitt 3rd overall at the event and we currently have him in ranked in our top 10 in the state. In addition, we selected Nesbitt as Second Team All-State this season
Based on his body of work, Nesbit has established himself as one of the top floor generals in the state. Here is what we’ve said about Nesbitt’s game in the past “Nesbit’s skill set and basketball IQ are beyond his years. He handles the ball extremely well and can either get to the cup or hit the 3-ball.”
According to Anton Turner, Nesbitt’s former coach, Nesbitt’s game is elite. “Nino is very crafty, knows how to play the game, has great court awareness and is a good defender.” In terms of Nesbitt’s upside potential, Coach Turner sees a bright future. “He [Nesbitt] is going to make a great point guard one day. If he gets some height, he projects as a mid to high major prospect,” continued Turner.
Over the past several weeks Nesbitt has been playing in open gyms at Pickerington Central Crossing High School where he’s had a chance to compete against 7th and 8th graders, and from what we’ve heard, he’s more than held his own. In addition, Nesbitt will be running with Coach Scott Bradley’s 6th grade New Birth Warriors squad, which is absolutely loaded this year! Not only is Nesbitt getting it done on the basketball court, he’s holding down an impressive 3.7 GPA at Berwick Elementary School and he speaks fluid Spanish. The future is bright for Nesbitt and we intend to continue to track his development.
