He’s been a dominant force on the Dallas basketball scene. Now, the sky’s the limit for Lincoln High School product LeBryan Nash.
Nash is the latest high riser from Lincoln, with the most notable being current Miami Heat All-Star Chris Bosh. Just like Bosh, Nash has led Lincoln to the upper level of high school basketball. Lincoln finished 32-4 this year with Nash leading the way, averaging 21.6 points, 8.7 boards and 3.8 assists. Those numbers earned the forward an invite to play in the 2011 McDonalds All-American Game in Chicago. Nash did Dallas proud, winning the national high school slam dunk contest at the 2011 POWERADE Jam Fest there.
At 6-7 and 220 pounds, Nash is athletic enough to play various positions on the court. His floor general mentality can create match-up problems on the wing, which recruiters loved. Nash had his pick of top college programs, including Texas, Baylor, Arizona, Kansas and St. John. In the end, he chose to take his game to Stillwater to play for Travis Ford and Oklahoma State.
The Cowboys definitely got one of the most talented players in the 2011 class. Having seen him play since his freshman year, Nash has the ability to be a star with his smooth and fluent game. Nash said the reason he chose OSU is because he loves the fact that Coach Ford will let him play his game, open up the court and put the ball in his hands.
If that’s the case and Nash delivers like many feel he will, Cowboys Nation will fall in love with what they get in return.
