In addition, 247’s National Recruiting Analyst Brian Dohn put out a “Crystal Ball Prediction” for Nester today and has him transferring to West Virginia as well. Dohn put his confidence level of West Virginia landing Nester at a “8/10.”
Nester, a 6’6 300 pound guard, would be a perfect addition to a line that will feature in-state standouts Zach Frazier and Wyatt Milum.
COME HOME, DOUG!
