Tulane gets No. 15 in CB Parry Nickerson

Cornerback Parry Nickerson (Harvey, La./West Jefferson) committed to Tulane, multiple sources report.

He told the New Orleans Times-Picayune:

"I saw the opportunity, and I had to take advantage of it. Tulane is a great team, and their new head coach [Curtis Johnson] is doing a great job."

West Jefferson coach Marcus Scott elaborated on Nickerson's game:

"He is a cover corner that has the ball skills. He has the change of direction and the reaction out of his breaks to beat the receiver to the ball."
