Nazeer Bostick: Getting better one shot at a time

In his first high school basketball season with Roman Catholic High School, Nazeer Bostick has already seen immediate success on the court.

“I think the season is going great,” said Bostick. “We’ve won four championships, the Philadelphia Catholic League, the city, a championship down in New York and D.C. and I think we can win the state championship.”

The 6-foot-5-inch junior small forward from Philadelphia transferred to Roman Catholic from Mathematics, Civics and Sciences Charter School and has caught the eye of several schools.

Bostick has received offers from schools throughout the east coast from the likes of Penn State, James Madison and Towson.

“It’s coming along,” Bostick said. “It’s going a little bit slow, but a couple of schools have contacted me. I’m not really worried about that right now and I just want to win another championship. After that, I think by playing in the AAU it will have them calling my phone faster.”

Bostick described himself as a well-rounded player.

“I can do everything: pass, rebound, score, assist, block shots,” he explained. “I can do everything.”

However, Bostick admitted one of his biggest weaknesses is shooting.

“Right now that’s my biggest weakness,” Bostick said. “After states, I’ll be going to the gym and getting ready for AAU to get a more improved jump shot.”

While Bostick knows what schools are seriously recruiting him, as well as what he needs to work on moving forward, he has decided to not rush his decision process. He said he will wait until next summer to decide. However, Bostick named his best option at the moment.

“My top school right now, because it’s the biggest school that’s offered me, is Penn State University,” Bostick said. “I think the school is great. I love everything about the school. I think their coaching staff is great and that’s everything.”

Bostick explained why he and his team have been so successful and what he wants in a future school.

“No negative energies, everybody’s friendly, everybody helps each other,” Bostick said. “We all work as a team and that’s why I think we had a lot of success this season.”
