Cincinnati (Ohio) Withrow four-star cornerback Teryhon Nichols has named his top six schools. His list includes Cincinnati, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Pittsburgh.

Nichols is the No. 280 overall prospect and No. 28 cornerback in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 8 player in Ohio.

On3 rates Nichols higher than other recruiting services, according to the Industry Comparison. Per the 2024 On300, Nichols is the No. 188 overall prospect in the country, the No. 24 cornerback and the No. 7 player in Ohio.

According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine (RPM), Michigan currently has has narrow lead over the five other schools in Nichols’ top six to land his pledge.

The 5-foot-10, 166-pounder currently has official visits set to Pittsburgh (June 9), Penn State (June 16) and Michigan (June 23).

“I’m kind of the middle right now with my recruitment,” Nichols told On3’s Chad Simmons earlier in the month. “I wouldn’t say I am still a ways away from a decision, but I wouldn’t say I’m too close either. I want to get that feeling. That’s important to me to make the decision, so I look forward to getting out to these official visits.”

“I’m going into my visits without any favorites. I’m going to keep things open and maybe cut my list down this month but it’ll be about how I feel. I just want to make the right decisions at the right times, so it will all be based on how I feel with my family. We will keep talking it all out and make the best decisions.”

Nichols currently has an On3 NIL Valuation of $51K. The On3 NIL Valuation is the industry’s leading index that sets high school and college athletes’ projected annual value (PAV). The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
