Nixon is a quick, slashing point guard. He is able to weave through traffic to create space or set up shots for his teammates. He seems to have matured and grown since our last evaluation. His quickness translates well to the defensive end where he can hound ball handlers. In future showings Nixon will need to show range on his jumper. Keeping defenders honest with the outside shot will be important moving forward.

Nixon is another talented guard that will be in the pipeline of talent at Mountain View for coach BJ Roy. Just a freshman, Nixon might be a bit undersized currently. However, as it occurs with many prospects, he is sure to grow and physically mature in upcoming years. From a skill perspective, he showed his ability to put the ball on the floor and get down hill to penetrate and kick. He proved that he could hold his own versus older, more mature players. Playing with the Georgia Red Storm has clearly paid dividends in his experience as a young ball player. Hard work and development is definitely in his on the horizon. However, he showed that he has a good base of skill to work from in years to come.
