Watching Nique in state wont tell you much

it is 3A ball and he is double and triple teamed every possession by a bunch of kids that will never play competitive basketball again after HS.

I have coached him at the AAU level and he has a really high ceiling at CU. Because he is a late grower and plays 3A ball, we dont know exactly what to expect right away at CU, but he is a legit 6-5 (and growing) has freakishly long arms,36 inch vert, and can handle the ball better than any of the 2 guards currently on the roster. He needs to gain strength, and he needs to play against guys as good or better than him every day (which he will get once he is in Boulder)for a year or so before we really know what we got. At worst he is another Dom Collier, but his upside is Derrick White.
